In the mid-to-late 1950s and throughout the 1960s, Australia was experiencing exponential growth in its tourism industry thanks in part to the Australian National Tourism Association (ANTA) commissioning world-class artists to design travel posters. Mintage of only 5,000 coins!
First in new series. The travel posters of the post-war era were an integral part of Australia’s early 20th century tourism promotion, both internationally and domestically. Between the 1930s and the 1960s, ANTA, as well as State Government tourism organisations, airlines, railways, and other tourism operators, used travel posters as part of their strategy to sell Australia to the world. The coin’s reverse features a coloured representation of Dame Eileen Mayo’s iconic ‘Australia’ (Kangaroo) poster headed by the inscription VINTAGE TRAVEL. The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight and fineness also appear in the design. The coin's obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majest Queen Elizabeth II, the year-date and the monetary denomination. This coin comes housed in a stylish case with a themed shipper and numbered CoA.
