New CHOGM Dollar for Circulation

2011 CHOGM One Dollar

A special event held in Perth yesterday unveiled the design for over 5 million commemorative one dollar coins to be released into circulation later this month. We were first alerted to this release after it's inclusion in the first RAM currency determination for 2011. The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting will be held in October and Perth will host the largest gathering of world leaders ever in Western Australia which will include Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Gillard. The Royal Australian Mint brought coins to Western Australia yesterday for the unveiling at a special launch marking 100 days until the event.

The design features the globe under the Southern Cross surrounded by stylised flags in the shape of the state of Western Australia. The legends read "CHOGM 2011 1 Dollar Perth, Australia". This design depicts the official CHOGM logo. These coins will also be released in genuine RAM rolls.

See the 2011 mintage table for the latest mintage information.
