The Australian Rugby World Cup Coin
The Wallabies first victory came in 1991 in London, where they defeated the English in a close but low-scoring game. Their second triumph was in 1999 in Cardiff, Wales, against France. The pure silver Australia coin is legal tender in Australia and has been struck to proof quality. The prominent player is shown in the official 1991 Australian kit in a line-out. The coin also bears RWC's stylised Webb Ellis Cup design in the background.
