Australia 1-DOLLAR (KM100) Kangaroo

Australia issued this nice one dollar coin in 1988 only. The aboriginal-inspired design was created by goldsmith Stuart Devlin.

Apparently the coin was issued to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the "First Fleet." That would be the 11 ships that left Great Britain in 1787, carrying more than 1,000 convicts (and others) who would land in 1788 and found the first European settlement in Australia.
