The Inspirational Australian Series recognizes and celebrates the individual achievements and commemorates these unique Australians who have made an extraordinary contribution to our society.

Known as Australia’s King of Country but born David Gordon Kirkpatrick, the name Slim Dusty has been synonymous with Australian country music for nearly seventy years.

When he made his first recording in 1942 it was on a 78rpm record made at his own expense. “Song for the Aussies” marked the beginning of an incredible career that saw Slim Dusty release more than 100 albums, win dozens of song writing and recording awards as well as become the first artist to have his music broadcast from space on the 1981 Space Shuttle Columbia mission.

The one dollar coin is packaged on a card with a picture of Slim as released by the Royal Australian Mint.
