The Star Dreaming series highlights some of the more memorable stories in Aboriginal folklore about the constellations seen in the Southern Hemisphere.

This second release features one constellation which has a very similar and coincidental story shared with the ancient Greek astronomers.

The Seven Sisters, as they are known to Indigenous Australians, is also the cluster of stars known as the Pleiades in the constellation of Taurus. Stories passed down over the millennia describe them as a group of young women being pursued by unwanted male attention: Literally a tale as old as time. The celestial cluster tells the story of the seven sisters fleeing to the sky to escape a man who wants to take one of the sisters as his wife.

The reverse includes a line of the Seven Sisters leaping into the horizon and above the heavens. Towards the upper-right is a vividly coloured representation of the sky at night and the Seven Sisters cluster shown in the distinct Aboriginal style. The obverse includes the effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.
