The limited-issue 2011 2-Coin Proof Year Set honors Australia’s rich history of wool production.

Wool production in Australia is one of the country’s oldest, most successful industries. For more than a century after the first commercial export to England in 1811, Australian wool remained central to the growth of our burgeoning economy.

The familiar phrase "Riding on the Sheep’s Back" clearly summarizes the social, economic and cultural significance of this industry to the development of modern Australia.

The $1 coin features a shearer hard at work against a textured background whilst the 20c coin depicts a wheel illustrated with a series of images representing Australia’s rich history of wool production.
