Australian 1 Dollar ($1) Coins – 1984 to 1990 Issues and Mintages

The First Australian Dollar Coin dated 1984

The First Australian Dollar Coin dated 1984

1984 saw the release of the Australian Aluminium Bronze dollar coin and the beginning of most popular coin series for Australian coin collectors. New opportunities for coin collectors (and revenue raising opportunities for the Royal Australian Mint) began in the very first year of issue with collector uncirculated grade and proof grade coins released specifically for collectors. 1986 saw the very first commemorative dollar released (the International Year of Peace). In 1988 the $2 coin was released and following this millions of dollar coins were melted down, presumably these were 1984 issues. In 1990 we saw the first silver proof dollars struck in the 1990 Masterpieces in Silver set. Truly those interested in dollar coins had a lot to watch out for!

The table below details each and every dollar coin released from 1984 to 1990. We’ve endeavoured to cover each way in which the coins were released, so for example, the same proof coin from one year may be available in a cased proof, the normal proof set, a coin fair proof set, and even a baby proof set!
