Australian Dollar Coins: 2005 Issues and Mintages
The circulation coin for 2005 was the "Peace" dollar comemmorating the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II, also known as the Dancing Man dollar. A Mob of Roos coin was not intended for circulation initially but when a Mob of Roos reverse die was accidently paired with the 2005 Ian Rank-Broadley obverse and a run produced it was decided to continue with the release to avoid any negative publicity. This was the first year in which both a fine silver and a gold set were available to collectors. 2005 was also the final year in the Koala series of Baby Sets.
