Australian Aluminium Bronze Proof Dollars

1992 Women In Sport

Aluminium Bronze

The coin was to be marketed as a single proof but due to some licensing issues with the IOOC the production of this coin was stopped , with stocks sold only through the shop at the mint leading to a very low mintage of just 2,940 coins.
This release is a commemoration of the XXV Olympiad held in Barcelona, Spain in 1992. The design by Margaret Priest is a tribute to the spirit of competition, fair play and togetherness that symbolizes the modern Olympics.
