When decimal currency was introduced in 1966, collectors were surprised to learn that a One Dollar coin was not considered as part of the new lineup. The editor of the Australian Coin Review took up the challenge and conducted a competition among readers. The "Swan Dollar" (more commonly called the Goose Dollar) was the winning entry and the design was forwarded to the relevant Government Department. When the design was rejected, the competition organizers decided to have it privately minted." (2014 Pocket Guide to Australian Coins and Banknotes by Greg McDonald).
