Description of obverse and reverse Issued as Australian legal tender, the obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, bordered by the inscriptions «ELIZABETH II», «AUSTRALIA 2013» and the monetary denomination. The reverse of the Sister Cities coin features a coloured image of an iconic landmark in each metropolis. The Admiralty Building of St Petersburg is shown with Isaac Cathedral in the background, while the front façade of Flinders Street Station in Melbourne is depicted with a passing tram. With the use of lenticular lenses, these images transform from one to the other as the coin is moved. The design is headed by the inscription «SISTER CITIES» and surrounded by a decorative band inspired by the architecture of each landmark. The Perth Mint’s traditional «P» mintmark also appears in the design.
A brief annotation The Sister City relationship between St Petersburg in Russia and Melbourne in Australia began on 21 April 1989 and is the only cooperative partnership between cities in these two nations. The relationship was created to promote cultural, educational and sporting exchanges, and exclusive business arrangements. The alliance continues to strengthen with every passing year.

Такие монеты не видя, очень тяжело комментировать. Наверное, что-то примечательное в исполнении.

Хотелось бы конечно надпись "братья Сити"  
Австралия делает солидные монеты, даже если они недостаточно хорошо продуманы.

Задумка очень хороша, жаль что фотография не передает всей красоты.
