Stuart Devlin - Australian decimal coins

Fifty years ago in 1964 Stuart Devlin was selected to design Australia's new decimal coins. This work was a significant achievement for Stuart at the time and the nation celebrated his design talent during the extensive public advertising campaign as we went decimal in 1966.

Designed in Melbourne - Australian 20 cent coin with iconic platypus design by Stuart Devlin.

I have interviewed Stuart for my research and viewed his original sketches at the Australian Mint Museum in Canberra. See previous post here
