2012 RAM Australian Year of the Farmer $1 Uncirculated Coin in Card
In 2012, Australia celebrates the Year of the Farmer. It is a year to acknowledge the efforts of farming communities and the 136,000 farms across our wide brown land, as well as the rural industries and agribusiness they support.
The coin design illustrates the biodiversity of Australia's farming communities in the fields of both agriculture and husbandry. It showcases farming across the broad spectrum of agribusiness from fruit orchards and fields of wheat, to sheep and cattle farming, all dependent on the talented use of water, the scarcest of all resources.
