Colonial Australia was a dangerous place, with roads and townships attracting lawless renegades known as bush rangers. In 2019 history buffs, descendants and coin enthusiasts will be able to follow the folklore of the Australian Bushranger with the Royal Australian Mint's Roadshow.
As Australia's colonies developed, bushrangers roamed the roads and townships: the scourge of police and troopers who struggled to uphold the law in the expanding settlements. The bushrangers came from a range of backgrounds: some were ant-establishent heroes to the common people, some were forced into a life of crime; many were violent career criminals. Although bushrangers were feared, they also sparked a legacy of art and folklore, and helped create the myth of the Australian 'larrikin'.
The second of a three year theme of Colonial Australia.
Coin's reverse depicts a scene of the classic Australian bushranger and the brave colonial trooper, reflecting the drama and action of the time
