In 2012 the Royal Australian Mint produced a four coin set that
features the town halls of Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. The coins are of a five dollar denomination and are produced
from bronze with an antiqued finish. This piece was released at the ANDA Money Expo in Brisbane and features the Brisbane
City Hall. The reverse features an elegant front view of the Brisbane
City Hall with the
"BRISBANE CITY HALL" and the denomination "FIVE DOLLARS." The obverse
features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II with the
"ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2012."
Construction of the Brisbane City Hall began in 1920 and was completed by 1930.

The architecture of the building followed a formal renaissance style. Central to the design is an imposing clock tower
based on the design of Saint Mark's Campanile in Venice. Today the building is the civic seat of the city and hosts a variety
of major events over the year.
