It features a call to action – Give to Help Others – and a green centre with a ripple design, which emanates from the centre, with the Queen on the reverse. The more the coin is donated, the more the green wears to reveal a series of golden ripples to symbolise the ongoing impact each Donation Dollar has made.People are encourages to donate it to a cause or charity of their choice, to a local business that is struggling or to anyone they think needs it more than they do. As legal tender, the coin however can also be spent normally.The Royal Australian Mint estimates that if every Australian donated just one Donation Dollar a month, this could raise an additional $300 million dollars annually for those in need.Such a coin has been mooted in the UK, and initiatives such as #FirstFiver have seen new coins and notes donated to charity but as of yet, no dedicated coin has been designed.  734 total views,  2 views today [youtube height=”450″width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5rKR_M1sqQ&feature=youtu.be[/youtube]center_img  735 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 Australia launches Donation Dollar to boost giving The Royal Australian Mint starts rolling out the Donation Dollar today: a $1 legal tender designed to encourage Australians to give.Created in partnership with Saatchi & Saatchi Melbourne, an initial 4.5 million Donation Dollars have been produced and will be progressively released from 2 September 2020.
