In 2008 the Royal Australian Mint introduced a new series of NCLT one dollar coins dedicated to Inspirational Australians. This second coin released and dated 2009 was issued in an unusual shaped Coincard.
This second coin in the series recognises and honours Steve Irwin. With his unconventional style and undeniable charisma, Steve convinced us to think about wildlife in a new way. His sudden passing in 2006 stunned the world, but his legacy will not be forgotten. His Crocodile Hunter wildlife documentaries, Australia Zoo in Beerwah, Queensland and the establishment of the conservation charity, Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors has made an indelible mark on wildlife conservation that will live on for years to come.
