1993 6 Coin Mint Set
Australia is a lucky country in all but one respect - water resources. With an ever-growing population putting increasing strain on agricultural requirements, water can no longer be taken for granted. Water quality testing must remain high on the list of national priorities, as information gathered through it is invaluable to programs tackling problems such as salinity, erosion and pollution.
To help raise awareness about the importance of water quality, the Royal Australian Mint and Landcare Australia joined forces to produce the 1993 coin set. It's centrepiece is a one dollar coin featuring a stylised design of a tree formed out of flowing waters, symbolising the extremely important relationship between water quality and the environment.
