Colonial Australia was a dangerous place, with lawless renegades known as bushrangers haunting the roads and settlements. Frederick Ward and his partner Mary Ann Bugg were known far and wide as ?Captain Thunderbolt? and ?The Captain?s Lady?. Their boldness and acts of gallantry earned them a certain amount of public sympathy. With this Silver Proof Coin, the Royal Australian Mint recalls Australia?s bushrangers and their legacy of art, folklore and identity.
