Fifty years ago, a government initiative and a cache of ready talent gave life to the Australian Ballet, which first performed in 1962. Still bringing cherished classics and ground-breaking new works to a diverse audience, its trademark versatility, technical excellence and warmth are executed with apparent effortlessness.This coin presents a quintessential image of performance by the Australian Ballet. The coin is available in a Credit Card Style Pack and also available as a silver proof coin.
