Tennis Trophy Dollars up for eBay Auction

January 28, 2012

The Australian Open tennis men's and women's finals matches held on the 28th and 29th of January 2012 featured something just a little different this year. The coins used in the toss prior to the start of the match that allows the winning player to choose who serves first were the commemorative Australian Open 2012 Tennis designs produced by the Royal Australian Mint. The men's trophy design for the men's final and the women's trophy design for the women's final.

Each NCLT aluminium bronze one dollar was auctioned by Tennis Australia with the proceeds donated to the Australian Tennis Foundation. These coins, sold on eBay fetched $3,051 for the men's coin and $837 for the women's.
