1986 International Year of Peace RAM 7 Coin Proof Set
1986 was proclaimed the International Year of Peace by the United Nations and this was celebrated in Australia with a circulating one dollar design featuring a peace dove, hands and a wreath. These iconic peace symbols incorporated into the design by Horst Hahne put forward the values of the United Nations to continue peace efforts wordwide as not only an achievement but a continuing goal. A goal also for ourselves as a nation within the UN.
1986 was the first year Australia had a one dollar coin commemorative issue.
We had previously only seen the standard Mob of Roos design. For this first dollar commemorative we saw the reverse design modeled by Horst Hahne with the obverse effigy modeled by Raphael Maklouf.
It is the standard 25mm diameter circulating aluminium bronze Australian dollar coin weighing 9 grams. Aluminium bronze is composed of 92% Copper, 6% Aluminium and 2% Nickel. 25,100,000 of the 1986 dollar coins were released into circulation.
