Engraver: Vladimir Gottwald

Vladimir Gottwald was a member of the Royal Australian Mint's Design and Engraving Section. His portrait, designed following the British Royal Mint's invitation for a new effigy in 1996, was among the three designs submitted to Her Majesty for approval. Although Rank-Broadley's design was eventually chosen, Gottwald's design was approved for a once only use to commemorate the Royal Visit in 2000.

Comments

In an effort to promote care of the environment and natural resources the Australian government initiated the Landcare program. In 1993 in support of this initiative the RAM released the Landcare commemorative dollar. Two different lastic folders were used to distribute the coin.

       

Initially intended as a collector only coin a shortage of dollar coins in circulation resulted in the RAM using the Landcare dollar dies (minus a mintmark), minting nearly 20 million of the coins for release into circulation.

The coin was also included in the annual Uncirculated Set and Proof Set & in the very first Baby Mint Set.
The coin was also released with a "C" mintmark at the Public Press in Canberra, and "M" & "S" Mintmarks on a mobile press at Royal Shows in Melbourne & Sydney. A special "Water is Life" BBC Hardware Coincard was issued also.
 
Two different silver proof versions of the coin were released in capsules in plush boxes with different edging.
