Vale Stuart Devlin Your Iconic Coin Designs Forever in My Pocket


We are saddened to hear of the peaceful passing of the beloved designer Stuart Devlin whose designs adorn coins of many countries including many of those you have in your pocket or wallet right now. He’s the designer of the platypus 20 cent, the iconic mob of roos dollar, the teeny echidna 5 cent, in fact he designed all of Australia’s standard decimal coin reverses that have been in circulation since 1966 (except the $2 coin issued later). Not only has Mr Devlin designed coins but also silver art pieces, gold jewellery, sculptures, furniture and he’s even designed houses. A book “Stuart Devlin Designer, Goldsmith, Silversmith” written by his wife Carole Devlin and her sister Victoria Kate Simkin was recently published detailing his lifes work and includes a biography which is a tribute to his achievements in life.

Stuart Devlin AO born in 1931 was 86 and passed away April 12th 2018.
