Exquisite Mice Design by Ing Ing Jong
A portrait of reigning British monarch Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark dominates the obverse. Clark shows the monarch in right-side profile with her shoulders open to the holder. Her Royal Diamond Diadem sits on her head, and she also wears earrings and a necklace. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," joins "AUSTRALIA" on the top half of the rim frame, while inscriptions on the bottom half read, "1 OZ 9999 AG" and "1 DOLLAR."
The reverse bears the work of Ing Ing Jong. Two mice are nibbling on corn. One holds a piece to its mouth, while the other nibbles a piece from the cob. To the right is the Chinese character for "MOUSE," which is inscribed just below it. Below that is the date, "2020."
