Australian Silver Proof Dollars

1995 Waltzing Matilda Centenary

.925 Sterling Silver

This celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the song 'Waltzing Matilda' written by Andrew "Banjo" Paterson in western Queensland during January 1895 at old Dagworth Station.
Banjo has immortalized the Australian spirit in a song that for what ever reason has been embraced by the nation as typically Australian.
Although the greater percentage of Australians had, or may still have, no idea what the song really meant or why it was written, they could still identify with the ethos of a fair go.
Waltzing Matilda is, and will always be - The ballad of the fair go.

This iconic issue has proved popular with collectors and non-collectors alike. Although one of the more copious issues, the demand has remained strong.
The $1 Sterling Silver Proof Coin features a Swagman & comes with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
