A limited collector coin replicating the design of the historical Sydney Cove Medallion has been unveiled at the Museum of Sydney by Lord Wedgwood of Barlaston, the seventh generation descendant of Josiah Wedgwood, whose company created the original Medallion in 1789.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver and issued as official Australian legal tender, the coin features a special 'high relief' representation of the celebrated Medallion's allegorical design portraying 'time's opening scenes' in the colony of New South Wales.
With four classical figures on the shores of a bay, the scene was called Hope encouraging Art and Labour under the influence of Peace to pursue the employments necessary to give security and happiness to the infant colony. Beneath the figures in raised lettering was inscribed ETRURIA 1789, the name of Wedgwood's Staffordshire factory.
