MAKING A DIFFERENCE

The year 2003 saw the Royal Australian Mint consult with the peak volunteering body, Volunteers Australia to design a set of coins celebrating the contribution of more than 4 million volunteers. This coin is the Circulating Aluminium-bronze version of this $1 coin.
A Copper-nickel 20 cent & 50 cent as well as the Aluminium-bronze $1 coin were designed and minted with words, "Australia's Volunteers : Making a Difference". All 3 commemorative coins incorporated designs to honour Australia's volunteers. All three coins were released into general circulation and were included in the UNC Year Set and Koala Baby Year set
The Proof Year Sets included the Copper-nickel 20 cent & 50 Cent coins but the Aluminium-bronze $1 was a pad printed coloured version in Green and Yellow. The Wedding Specimen Set did not include the pad printed coloured coin, it had the standard coin only.
A Fine Silver (.999) Proof version of the coin was also released in limited numbers in a capsule inside a plush square case.
