An iconic element of Australian numismatics, we are delighted to present the rare 1967 Goose Dollar – in stunning Proof quality!
The 1967 Goose $1 was designed by Andor Mészáros – the man whose designs came so close to being chosen as Australia’s decimal coinage in 1963. Based on the motifs of his entries for the new decimal 2c and 20c, Mészáros’ Goose $1 design won an Australian Coin Review competition in response to the absence of a decimal $1 coin denomination.
Somewhat tongue-in-cheek, the Goose $1 design was officially submitted to the Commonwealth, and officially rejected. This led the Australian Coin Review to have the Goose $1 privately minted by medallists John Pinches of London. Struck from 28.70g of sterling silver, the mintage of the plain edge 1967 Goose $1 Proof was a mere 750. With many lost or mishandled, the Goose $1 is rare in the exquisite quality seen here.
Simply a must-have for the serious Australian collector, this key Crown type is always in demand. Click add to cart now, before this spectacular Goose Dollar flies out the door!
