According to tradition, when soldier and pastoralist James Brumby was transferred from Sydney to Van Diemen’s Land in 1801, he was forced to release a number of horses into the bush. Known as ‘brumbies’, their descendants continue to roam the Australian Alps today. Hardy and independent, they are seen by many as symbolic of the Australian national character.
The coin’s high relief design represents a leaping brumby among steep mountainous outcrops typical of the Snowy Mountains and Victorian Alps. Included on the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged with an illustrated shipper, the coin is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
