1993 Landcare DOLLAR
The 1993 Landcare dollar was originally available only at the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra for $2 in a special landcare envelope. However, a coin shortage led to the release of 15 million dollar coins into general circulation.
This coin was included as part of a 6 coin proof set and two 6 coin mint sets (Normal and Gumnut) released by the Canberra mint.
|To help raise awareness of water quality issues, the Royal Australian Mint, Landcare Australia and BBC Hardware combined to initiate a 'Clean Rivers' project which was partially funded by the release of the Landcare Dollar coin mounted, unsealed, on special see-both-sides cardboard presentation sheet.|
