Contrary to the murky origins of many of the convicts transported to Australia between 1788 and 1868, many of those criminals actually helped to shape our nation to be what it is today. Whilst its true, some of the convicts continued their illegal ways - some became bushrangers, for instance - there were many more that shaped the country in a positive fashion. Australia's first ever coins, the holey dollar and dump, were created by a convict, for example.

This Royal Australian Mint set of four $1 coins celebrates the convict origins of Australia with a design in the shape of a tree growing up and outwards from the roots of convict past. Each of the four Uncirculated coins also feature either a 'C' for Canberra Mintmark, or an 'S' for Sydney, 'M' for Melbourne, or 'B' for Brisbane privymark.
