Australia Mint Celebrates Country Music

03 Jan 2022  Mon

A new commemorative coin has been minted by the Royal Australian Mint to mark the 50th anniversary of one of the world’s biggest music festivals, the Tamworth Country Music Festival.

Held in Australia’s Country Music Capital, the Tamworth Country Music Festival has attracted thousands of country music fans from across Australia and around the world every year since its inception in 1972. Two versions of the coin were issued, and aluminum-bronze uncirculated coin and a Proof .999 fine silver version.

The coin design is dominated by the iconic Golden Guitar synonymous with the festival. The backdrop of the coin is inspired by the festival stage, illuminated with beaming light. The coin features the festival’s signature Golden Guitar logo at the center of its reverse design.
