CELEBRATE AUSTRALIA - WORLD HERITAGE SITES
2010 FIVE $1 BASE METAL COLOURED COIN COLLECTION FROM THE PERTH MINT

WORLD HERITAGE SITE DESIGNS
The Perth Mint’s 2010 Celebrate Australia $1 coins portray stunning Australian landscapes and marine environments inscribed on the World Heritage List.

GREATER BLUE MOUNTAINS
Inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2000, the Greater Blue Mountains just to the west of Sydney consist of more than one million spectacular hectares of sandstone plateaux, escarpments and gorges dominated by temperate eucalypt forest. The coin’s reverse depicts the Three Sisters rock formation from Echo Point in colour. The design includes a Blue Mountains Tree Frog, an inhabitant of the region’s rocky rivers and streams.

GREAT BARRIER REEF
Inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1981, the world’s largest coral reef system abounds with marine life including 400 types of coral, 1,500 species of fish, 400 species of sponges and beautiful marine mammals such as whales, dolphins and dugongs. The coin’s reverse depicts a representation of tropical corals in colour. The design includes a green sea turtle, one of six species of protected marine turtle that occur in Australian waters.

HEARD ISLAND & MCDONALD ISLANDS
Inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1997, the pristine ecosystem of these sub-Antarctic islands in the stormy waters of the Southern Ocean 4,000 kilometres south-west of Perth is largely unaffected by human activity or introduced species. The coin’s coloured reverse represents the Islands’ rugged landscape. The design includes macaroni penguins, one of several species that breed there.

SHARK BAY
Inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1991, Shark Bay, an area of 2.3 million hectares on the most westerly edge of the Australian continent, is the remarkable meeting point for tropical, desert and temperate climatic regions. The coin’s coloured reverse symbolises seagrass in Shark Bay’s sun-warmed waters. The design includes a dugong, a wonderful inhabitant of an area teeming with marine life.

THE TASMANIAN WILDERNESS
Inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1982, the Tasmanian Wilderness, a rugged landscape shaped by glaciers, comprises parks and reserves representing one of the last large temperate wilderness regions in the Southern Hemisphere. The coin’s coloured reverse symbolises a waterfall in a primeval Tasmanian forest. The design includes an Eastern quoll, a marsupial considered to be extinct on mainland Australia.
