The Wet Tropics conservation area lies between Townsville and Cooktown on the northeast coast of Queensland and covers an expanse of 894,420 hectares. It has Australia’s greatest diversity of animals and plants within an area of just 0.26% of the continent. Many plant and animal species in the Wet Tropics are found nowhere else in the world.
The coin’s coloured reverse represents the Wet Tropic’s spectacular landscape, featuring a waterfall and native Burrawang Palms. The design also includes the Indigenous southern cassowary, a large flightless bird related to the emu.
The coin’s reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
The coin is housed on an eye-catching presentation card, which has a fold-out stand for upright display.
