2014 Medi-mazing! - A Nation of great Inventors

One Dollar Uncirculated Coin in Card

The first release of the Clever Australia three coin series is fittingly titled Medi-mazing, celebrating Australian medical breakthroughs. This intricately designed coin applauds many ground breakingcontributions in the field of medicine.

In 1912, when Lawrence Bragg rad the notion that X-rays could determine crystal structure, his bold ides led to a Nobel Prize and the medical world embracing crystallography. Many other Australians have taken risks with ideas that have since become medical breakthroughs: The pacemaker (1926, Dr Mark C Lidwill), penicillin (1939, Howard Florey), IVF embryo freezing (1983, Professor Carl Wood) and spray-on skin for burns victims (1999, Professor Fiona Wood).

While enquiring minds are still developin medical innovations across the country, This coin celebrates a nation of grat inventors.
