Australian Open 100th Men’s Champion

2012 $2 Selectively Gold Plated Fine Silver Proof Coin – Official Australian Open 100th Men’s Champion

The four Grand Slam tournaments: Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open, represent the pinnacle of world tennis competition. Wimbledon was the first of these tournaments and commenced in 1877, with the Australian Open, originally the Australasian Championships, starting in 1905. Since then the Australian Open has been contested each year, except during the two World Wars and in 1986, when the tournament shifted from mid-December to mid-January.

The reverse of this coin features a representation of the medal that will be presented to the Australian Open 100th Men’s Champion. This coin is presented in a black leatherette case with a Certificate of Authenticity, safely kept together in a beautifully designed outer box.

Sheaf Wheat Dollar Coin Silver Royal Australian Mint

Similar to the Ram’s Head Dollar produced in 2011, the 2012 Mintmark Series will feature a replica of the pre-decimal Australian threepence. Also designed by George Kruger Gray, the first wheat sheaf threepence design appeared in circulation from 1938 to 1964.

The imagery depicted on this coin reflects a hardworking Australia that for 120 years has enjoyed an expanding economy because of the successful development of its primary industries.

What better way to celebrate an Australian success story than with the 2012 One Dollar Silver Proof Wheat Sheaf Coin. It is stamped with the Canberra mintmark and presented in a black leatherette case along with its Certificate of Authenticity.
