2002 Australian Silver Proof Dollar Obverse

The logo depicts a stylised outline of Australia, with the top of the outline reflected in the nation's interior. The logo also incorporates the Southern Cross, a well-known symbol of Australia and guide for travellers over the ages. Reaching towards the Southern Cross are a series of trails, representing the stories or marks that were left, first by Aborigines and then by white settlers, explorers, and pioneers in the outback.
