Commonwealth Games

1982

The 1982 Two Hundred dollar gold coin was issued to celebrate the Commonwealth Games that were held in Brisbane. The reverse features an athlete hurdling over the Commonwealth Games logo with the legend "XII COMMONWEALTH GAMES BRISBANE" and was designed by Margaret Priest. The obverse bears an Arnold Machin portrait of Queen Elizabeth II along with the legend "ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 1982".

The 1982 Commonwealth Games in Brisbane were opened by the Duke of Edinburgh and closed by Queen Elizabeth II. They took place at both the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium and the Sleeman Sports Complex in Chandler. Forty-five Commonwealth nations and territories participated in the games and sports contested included athletics, boxing, cycling, weightlifting and wrestling. During the games Australia came out on top in terms of the number of both gold and silver medals but England won in the total number of medals won throughout the competition. The logo used to represent the Brisbane Games was designed by Hugh Edwards, an Australian and the winner of a nation-wide competition.
