Australian Stock Horse 2013 One Ounce Silver Carded Coin

australian-stock-horse-2013-1oz-silver-coin-reverse-perth-mint-silver-coin-release-bu-carded-imageOriginating from the colonial stock which arrived with the First Fleet in 1788, the Australian Stock Horse is bred to endure the harsh conditions of the country’s vast outback.

Renowned for its calm temperament, agility, strength and endurance, the Australian Stock Horse has evolved to become both a reliable working and fine performance breed.  Considered extremely versatile, this variety of horse is often chosen for general riding, stock work on pastoral land, and equestrian competitions.

In 1910 the Australian Notes Act was passed, and in 1913 the first series of Australian notes which were based on the old British system were issued.

The first Australian currency note, the ten shilling denomination was produced in May 1913. Other denominations from £1 to £1,000 followed during the years 1913 – 1915.

The coin’s reverse features a coloured representation of Australia’s first ten shilling banknote. The inscription AUSTRALIA’S FIRST BANKNOTE 100TH ANNIVERSARY and the dates 1913 – 2013 are also portrayed in the design with The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Two Australia Post stamps with denominations of 60c and $2.60 complete this set.  The 60c stamp depicts a portrayal of the official note numbering ceremony in 1913, and the $2.60 stamp depicts the Australian Coat of Arms as it appears on the first banknote.
