Comments

This Hologram version of the standard definitive "Mob of Roos" $1 coin was released by the Royal Australian Mint only in the Proof Year & Proof Koala Baby Set for 2004.



According to the publication "A Pocket Guide to Australian Coins and Banknotes"23rd Edition by Greg McDonald, a version of the Hologram MOR coin was released as a special international order of 50,000 cased copies. However this special corporate order supposedly had the Arnold Machin 2nd portrait of the Queen rather than the IRB 4th portrait. None have been found and this is probably incorrect.
