The latest in the Royal Australian Mint's World Money Fair 'pictorial privymark' series, the 2018 $1 Brandenburg Gate Privymark Al-Br Unc has just been released! The coin is notable for its unique privymark, based on Berlin's world-famous Brandenburg Gate. It is destined to be every bit as sought-after as its predecessors, with its fresh take on Stuart Devlin's iconic 'Mob of Roos' $1 design.

An official WMF release

The 47th annual World Money Fair has drawn tremendous crowds to Berlin, with the event consistently attracting legions of mints and collectors alike. Thanks to our attendance at the Fair, we were able to secure a small number of this terrific coin - housed in official WMF packaging, of course.

Strictly limited edition

Despite the World Money Fair's international profile, just 5,000 of this superb release have been issued. The coin's Brandenburg Gate privymark was especially significant to the event's enthusiastic home crowd in Berlin, so Downies had to work hard to secure even a small allocation before frenzied demand took hold. We recommend you don't delay your order - this prized privymark Unc isn't likely to surface again any time soon.

A Unique Australian legal tender type from the RAM

Struck by Australia's home of circulating coinage, this sensational release has been crafted to the RAM's uncompromising Uncirculated standard. It is also a unique, Australian $1 legal tender type - critical for a complete collection!

Features a privymark depicting the Brandenburg Gate

A triumph of Neo-Classical architecture, Berlin's Brandenburg Gate has stood proudly in the city since 1791. It more recently became the foundation for celebrations at the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, in 2009. A tribute to European Unity and Peace, it is not only a beautiful building, but an important symbol to those who pass by its majestic columns. The gate's iconic façade is beautifully rendered in this privymark - a simple, yet powerful, nod to global harmony.

Features the 'Mob of Roos' design - an Australian institution

Geelong resident Stuart Devlin was just 32 years old when he found himself in the running to design Australia's new Decimal Coinage in the swinging '60s. A Silversmith by trade, Devlin was reportedly reluctant to enter the competition. He thought it was a Graphic Designer's job! But his whimsical designs of Australian animals - beautifully composed to fill all available space - captured the hearts of the panel. History, and an enduring partnership, was made.

Perhaps his most iconic design of all, the 'Mob of Roos' motif was created by Devlin nearly twenty years later. The artist has since admitted that he struggled with kangaroos - their tails proved difficult to capture on a round surface in a satisfactory way. But he didn't shy away from the challenge! Featuring five kangaroos, the design feels inherently Australian: unfussy, charming and considered. And all five 'roos have tails.

Don't delay - order your unique Australian legal tender type today, before our small allocation disappears!
