Parliament House Triangular Coin

 2013 $5 Fine Silver Proof Coin - 25th Anniversary of Australian Parliament House

Please contact the sales team on 1300652020 for assistance.

Australia’s Parliament House was opened on 9 May 1988 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, which signalled a new era in the life of the Australian capital. Known at the time as “New Parliament House”, the building design was chosen as part of a two-stage competition process, the winners being New York-based architectural company Mitchell-Giurgolla. Interestingly, the building does not sit on the crest of Capital Hill, but rather rises out of the hill itself. This is meant to symbolise the building rising out of the Australian landscape, ‘as true democracy rises from the state of things'.
In addition to being the seat of Australia’s federal government, Parliament House is also one of Canberra’s most visited tourist attractions, so it is fitting that the Royal Australian Mint has commemorated the 25th anniversary of the building’s opening with the release of Australia’s first ever triangular coin.
