Description of obverse and reverse Issued as Australian legal tender, the coin’s obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II within a star burst pattern, bordered by the inscriptions ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, and the monetary denomination. The coin’s reverse features a sculpted representation of an abalone shell with a polished fragment of authentic shell inset as the centrepiece, against a rippled pattern representing the ocean floor.  The inscription AUSTRALIAN ABALONE SHELL and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark also appear in the design.
A brief annotation Abalone is a species of marine snail which can be found in the cold coastal waters of many continents, including Australia. The creature is protected by an ear-shaped convex shell, which displays a dull outer appearance and rough texture.  In contrast, its smooth inner surface is composed of mother-of-pearl featuring an iridescent swirl of colours ranging from deep cobalt blue and peacock green, to purples, pinks and creams.   The inner shell of the abalone is highly sought-after throughout the world for the creation of many decorative items. To showcase this treasure of nature, the abalone shell is the theme and feature inlay in this limited edition collector coin.

Такая монета уникальна тем, что в каждой монете эксклюзивная молюска, плюс такая монета хорошая наглядная вещь на уроках например зоологии
