Comments

Initially it was believed by many that the only way to get this $1 coin was as part of the ANZAC Coin Collection which was marketed by News Corp Australia newspapers. The ANZAC Coin Collection included a number of carded 20 cent coins that could be purchased along with a daily newspaper, however the dollar coin was only available to paid up subscribers and Rewards+ members of the papers. It was issued in a coincard.
  

Some are now available separately. Mintage is thought to be 13,500 and these coins are very much sought after, hard to find and command very high prices on Ebay.
