The Bold, The Bad and The Ugly: 'Australia’s Wild Colonial Bushrangers’
PRODUCT CODE 10097
2019 $10 Gold Proof 'C' Mintmark Coin
Colonial Australia was a dangerous place, with lawless renegades known as bushrangers haunting the roads and settlements. One story tells of the extraordinary John Francis Peggotty, known as the ‘Birdman of the Coorong’: a distinctive figure who held up travellers from the back of a riding ostrich. With this Gold Proof Coin, the Royal Australian Mint recalls Australia’s legendary bushrangers and their legacy of art, folklore and identity.
