The Northern Territory
The Northern Territory (NT) is a federal territory of Australia, occupying much of the center of the mainland continent, as well as the central northern regions. The territorial capital is Darwin.
The Northern Territory shares borders with Western Australia to the west, South Australia to the south, and Queensland to the east. To the north, the territory is bordered by the Timor Sea, the Arafura Sea and the Gulf of Carpentaria. Despite its large area (over 520,000 square miles, making it the third largest Australian federal division) the NT is sparsely populated. With a population of 221,100 it is the least populous division on the mainland.

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
