In 2012, Australia celebrates the Year of the Farmer. It is a year to acknowledge the efforts of farming communities and the 136 000 farms across our vast brown land, as well as the rural industries and agribusinesses that they support.

We have farmers to thank for our food and natural fibres. Though they are often faced with challenges never experienced, nor fully understood, by their urban-dwelling cousins, Australian farmers continue to supply us with some of the best produce in the world.

This $1 uncirculated coin design illustrates the biodiversity of Australia’s farming communities in the fields of both agriculture and animal husbandry. It showcases farming across the broad spectrum of agribusiness from fruit orchards to fields of wheat, sheep and cattle farming, all dependent on the strategic and talented use of water, the scarcest of all resources.

Can you spot the 'chicken crossing the road'? An unintentional but lighthearted design element realised after coining that we couldn't resist sharing with you.
