This is the 2005 60th Anniversary of the End of World War II gold coin by Australia's Perth Mint. It features a special lenticular image, so when you tilt the coin the man dances.
The bullion coin contains one troy ounce of .9999 fine gold. Each coin is supplied loose, in a protective capsule.
Only 750 of these coins were issued.
'The Dancing Man' is the name given to a man who was filmed celebrating the end of World War II. A journalist in Sydney was documenting the events on 15th August 1945, when he saw the man dancing. The footage appeared on the Australian edition of the newsreel Movietone News.
The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
ELIZABETH II 2005 AUSTRALIA
The reverse of the coin features a lenticular image, containing multiple frames of the 'dancing man' taken from newsreel footage. When you tilt the coin it produces a movie-like sequence showing him twirling and tipping his hat.
