A nice piece of Australian sporting memorabilia from the 2006 FIFA World Cup hosted in Germany.
These tokens were made for each of the participating teams and this one here for the Australian team.
Hard to find and a great addition for any sports enthusiast collection.
Pressed and anodised aluminium medallion / token
About the same size as a 20 cents coin
