In 1904, after spending an extended period abroad in London, and feeling homesick for Australia, Dorothea began writing My Country. Several rewrites later, the poem was published in The Spectator in London in 1908, under its original title, Core of My Heart. The poem presented a contrast between the English and Australian landscapes, and inspired patriotic sentiments and a sense of great national pride, particularly in the context of World War I. These legal tender coloured bars (one dollar coin) are made from one ounce of pure silver and measures 47.6 x 27.6 x 4 mm finished to proof condition and comes with a great display case.
