New South Wales
New South Wales (abbreviated NSW) is Australia's oldest and most populous state, located in the south-east of the country, north of Victoria, south of Queensland and east of South Australia. It contains Australia's largest city, Sydney.
New South Wales was founded in 1788 and originally comprised much of the Australian mainland, as well as Lord Howe Island and Norfolk Island. New Zealand was not initially part of the colony, although when Britain annexed New Zealand in 1840 it was briefly a part of New South Wales. During the 19th century large areas were successively separated to form the British colonies of Tasmania (proclaimed as a separate colony named Van Diemen's Land in 1825), South Australia (1836), Victoria (1851) and Queensland (1859).

The coin is part of a delightful series celebrating Australia’s eight mainland States and Territories. These eight colorful dollars comprise the Celebrate Australia Program. Each coin commemorates one of the eight Australian states and territories. The artistic and skillfully rendered design of each coin encompasses three distinct elements unique to each state or territory:

  • An iconic animal of that state or territory;
  • The official floral emblem;
  • A significant landmark or monument
