2020 50c Banjo Paterson - Treasured Australian Poetry - Waltzing Matilda Uncirculated Coin In Card

Three of the most beloved poems by Australian bush balladeer 'Banjo' Paterson are featured in this series of three 2020 50c uncirculated coins.

Waltzing Matilda, The Man From Snowy River and Clancy of the Overflow. 

Andrew Barton 'Banjo' Paterson (1864-1941), Bush Poet, Solicitor, Journalist, Soldier and War Correspondent wrote some of Australia's most iconic bush ballads.

Born near Orange in New South Wales, Paterson grew up in the bush, developing a great love for Australia's unique 'Outback' environment, horses and horsemanship.

Paterson's verse is noted for its romantic and dramatic depictions of life in the Australian bush, especially for the caricature of the Australian bushman, defining him as a bold, independent man of action, and also an anti-establishment larrikin. This legendary figure has contributed strongly to the development of Australia's national character, including the Australian Digger of the two World Wars.

Paterson's verse is still greatly beloved today, and Waltzing Matilda is regarded by many as Australia's unofficial anthem. His work has inspired artworks and films, and his image appears on Australia's $10 note.

Each coin is created in a unique aluminium bronze decagon format

Struck to the Royal Australian Mint's uncirculated standard.

The reverse of each coin features a beloved poem by Paterson : Waltzing Matilda (1895)

Presented in a full colour card.

The coin's obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by Jody Clark.

Each coin is issued as Australian legal tender.
