Australian 1990 Proof Eight Coin Year Set – Tribute to Australian Aboriginal People
This elegant coin set pays tribute to the Australian Aboriginal people. Australian Aboriginals believe that in another time, the ‘dreamtime’, ancestral spirits wandered the earth in both animal and human forms. They created in their travels the features of the land; rivers, hills, waterholes and rock formations. They also controlled the movements of the sun and moon, stars, rain, clouds and tides. These spirits established sacred laws and customs and their travels were embodied in the Aboriginal myths. It is through storytelling and decorated objects such as bark paintings that the power and influence of these ancient myths remains undiminished even today.
The proof coins in this set are struck from highly polished dies, using blanks with a smooth, bright surface. The resultant coin is a masterpiece of flawless beauty with the flat surface of the coin having a mirror-like finish and the raised surface, or design delicately frosted. Once minting is complete all dies are destroyed.
