The front of all the coins remains the same. In the center of the coin is an image of Queen Elizabeth II, encircling her image at the top of the coin are the words 'Elizabeth II', and 'Australia'. Encircling her image at the bottom are the coin's size, its purity of 9999, its year of minting, and finally its face value. This is the value to which the government of Australia has guaranteed the coin.
