Australian coins given a modern makeover



2016-01-25 16:15:18

The latest installment in artist Aaron Tyler's popular 'Straya Shrapnel' project sees Australian coins given a modern makeover.

The coin designs follow on from Tyler's 'Straya Cash' project in which he 'updated' Australian banknotes to include images of more modern Australian icons and moments in history. 

The modern coin designs feature AC/DC, Toni Colette, cricketer David "Boonie" Boon along with the Australian chip shop snack Dim Sim and convicted Australian weed smuggler Schapelle Corby.

It's unlikely that any of these coin designs will ever be minted-but they are still worth a look. It is Australia day tomorrow after all!
