The next time you take out a $10.00 note, take a close look at the design. The gentleman whose stalwart gaze looks towards a fountain pen is Andrew 'Banjo' Paterson, acclaimed as Australia's finest poet. To his right, just near the '10' dollar denomination, is a man charging precariously down a mountainside in pursuit of an unseen quarry. The fictional Man, the unnamed hero of Paterson's epic poem The Man from Snowy River and the actual poet, have earned a place on our currency because of the power of Paterson's words.

Published in an era when the colony of Australia yearned to become a nation, Paterson's hero similarly wanted acceptance from his peers. Risking life and limb to prove himself by capturing an escaped horse, the Man's exploits spoke to anyone who has ever had to step up to be heard. Not surprisingly, The Man from Snowy River is considered Australia's greatest poem. Its themes of self-worth and acceptance resonate profoundly with us even in the 21st century. From the $10.00 note to another currency approved by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 'The Man from Snowy River Golden Proof Coin' takes you on an adrenaline-charged ride through the high country to challenge yourself to be the best you can be.

Impressive is the only way to describe this coin. At 65mm in diameter and weighing 110 grams, coins of such proportions are struck to mark occasions of great importance. Minted to Proof standards, the highest possible quality and entirely layered with pure 24-carat gold. The technical complexities of striking at such a large diameter ensure that the worldwide mintage has been set remarkably low, at just 599 editions . This means that each of these limited edition coins has a rarity value in addition to its collectability, which would usually push the release price too high for most people.
