In 2010 the Royal Australian Mint continued with releases of the standard 25mm, 9 gram, aluminium bronze one dollar coin into both circulation and NCLT issues. All releases feature the standard Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II except one, the gold issue this year features the Vladimir Gottwald obverse previously seen only on the 2000 Royal Visit 50c. There was a release into circulation, a commemorative issue for the Centenary of the Girl Guides. These Girl Guide dollars were also available in commemorative RAM wrappered Rolls.
2010 continued with the idea of differentiating mintmark issues with mintmarks, counterstamps and privymarks. The RAM has even dusted off their mobile press last seen in 2008 to strike a C counterstamp at the Canberra ANDA show. They also specifically produced each privymark (and C mintmark) in one convenient 4 coin set and H,A,D and P privy’s also in a 4 coin set and show special releases were pre-struck silver proof commemoratives for 100 years of decimal coinage. The “Master” term in reference to the mintmark and privy mark on these silver proofs refers to the kangaroo.
2010 Dollar Coin Mintages
14/11/13: All issues have been updated with the 2012-2013 RAM annual report figures which added (amongst others) more circulating mob of roos coins. Most likely there will not be any more mintage numbers added to this list.
13/11/14: There are no more 2010 dated coins listed in the 2013-2014 annual report.
