Opening its doors in February 1965, the Royal Australian Mint has produced more than fifteen billion circulating coins. The demand for proof and uncirculated versions of coins resulted in the Mint’s expansion into producing high quality collectors coins, with their emphasis on quality systems and innovative technology continuing to this day.

Marking Mutiny On The Bounty, which took place on 27 April 1789, when tensions aboard HMS Bounty boiled over as Captain William Bligh's infamous ill temper provoked his crew to rebellion, as the vessel left Tahiti. The Bounty’s crew mutinied and Bligh with 18 of his most loyal sailors were forced into a launch and set adrift in the ocean. Remarkably, most survived to return to Britain to be hailed as heroes.

Some mutineers led by Fletcher Christian, settled in Pitcairn Island, which ultimately led to the foundation of Norfolk Island’s unique culture. Captain Bligh was eventually appointed Governor of New South Wales - where his explosive temper once again incited rebellion. In memory of these events, this 2019 $1 Uncirculated Coin features a scene from the Mutiny On The Bounty on one side and Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth on the other. It’s a must for both history buffs and coin collectors.
