2018 $10 Gold Proof 'C' Mintmark

Australia’s convicts were a mixed bunch, but their stories have impacted on Australia’s history. Among them was convicted forger William Henshall who won the job of designing and minting Australia’s very first coins, the Holey Dollar and Dump. With this gold coin, the Royal Australian Mint recalls the influence of convicts such as Henshall on the following generations, who contributed to the building of modern Australia and eventually took pride in their creative convict ancestors.
