Sales History


In 1800 New South Wales Governor Philip King made a proclamation in which he listed ten coins as legal tender in the colony. One of the pieces listed was the golden Portugese Johanna which was valued at four pound making it the highest denomination of the proclamation coins. The Royal Australian Mint has commemorated the Portugese Johanna with the release of this one dollar piece. The reverse features the gold plated reverse design of a 1732 Johanna surrounded by the silver legend which states "ONE JOHANNA" and the denomination "ONE DOLLAR". The obverse features the gold plated obverse design of the Johanna with the silver legend "ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2007."

The piece was released as part of the subscription dollar series which ran yearly between 1996 and 2011 with the exception of 2001. The subscription series was distinct from others as each issue was made to order. This meant that the total mintage was limited to the number of orders that had been made in advance of mintage. The series commemorated Australian numismatic history with a number of significant designs being re-struck as well as coins celebrating milestones such as a century of Australian coinage.
