Comments

In 2019, Australia marks 70 years since citizenship was recognised by law. The first Australian citizenship ceremony was held in 1949 with seven participants. Today, thousands of people take the ‘Pledge of Commitment’ each year, promising to uphold values of equal opportunity, mutual respect and tolerance, freedom of speech and religion, and commitment to democracy and Australian law.

This coin was released in a coin card by the Perth Mint.
 

It was also released by Australia Post in a longer than normal PNC issue 5 of 2019. (5,000 copies)
