Item specifics

Era: Pre - 1700s Country: Australia
Composition: Aluminium/Bronze

 The Royal Australian Mint, in conjunction with Tennis Australia, has released a special range of collectible coins. The range includes an Australian Open 2012 Men’s and Women’s commemorative coin which feature the men’s and women’s trophies.

The coins for auction have both been tossed at the respective singles finals matches at Australian Open 2012 with the Men’s final marking the 100th men’s championship at the Australian Open.

The Australian Open, the only Grand Slam ® tennis event held in the southern hemisphere, began at the Warehousemen’s Cricket Ground in Melbourne on 21 November 1905. Since starting in 1905, the Australian men’s championships have been contested every year except during the two world wars and in 1986, when the tournament shifted from mid-December to mid-January. In 99 years, there have been 59 different men’s titleholders.


The Official Australian Open Men’s Coin features a reverse design adorned with a likeness of the 2012 Australian Open trophy that awaits the eventual champion.


The men’s trophy, the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup, is named in honour of the Australian who claimed singles and doubles titles in the Australian, US and Wimbledon championships between 1907 and 1924.
