Taking place between 1 May and 31 October, the Shanghai World Expo 2010 is the largest expo the world has ever seen. Representing a significant national presence, the visually striking Australian pavilion is showcasing Australian innovation, creativity and achievement with engaging exhibits and unique attractions.
Honouring the host city, the coin’s reverse symbolises the Shanghai cityscape under a blue sky. Authorised by the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the coin’s design also includes the Australian pavilion logo in colour and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2010 year-date.
No more than 30,000 of these coins will be released by The Perth Mint.
