Royal Australian Mint Currency Determination 2012 Number 2

May 2, 2012

The second Currency Determination for 2012 for the Royal Australian Mint has been published today giving us insight into (proposed) new designs in the making at the RAM. You can read the determination on the Comlaw website. Of Interest is the 2013 issues with a new design by Wojciech Pietranik.

"A stylised representation of a diamond shaped road sign, including a representation of a kangaroo. The design includes a stylised representation of the Southern Cross in the upper right sector (partially covered by the road sign) and a line drawing of an octagon in the background."

No doubt the silver proof dollar will be on my purchase list but sadly I'll pass on the $3,000 denomination 1kg gold version. At today's gold price, just bullion value alone would see that coin at $51,666! I wonder if such a new kangaroo design would mimic the success of his stunning kangaroo at sunset design.
