I am the original die engraver and coin striker of that medal. I still have those original dies. Have just had a extensive article on my work published by the Royal numismatic society of NZ, dec 2010, journal number 90. I am currently producing and striking Australian Icons and places of Interest medals. Have made about 90 so far.
