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 NCLT Fine Silver (.999) Proof version of the commemorative $1 coin and it was released in a capsule as part of the very first Six Coin Fine Silver Proof Set in 2003. Also part of the set were Fine Silver commemorative 20 cent and 50 cent coins plus standard 5 cent, 10 cent and $2 silver coins.
An Aluminium-bronze version of the coin was released into circulation along with a Copper-nickel 20 cent & 50 cent. All 3 commemorative coins incorporated designs to honour Australia's volunteers. All three coins were available in the usual year sets too.
The Aluminium-bronze coin in the Year Proof Sets were pad printed in Green and Yellow.
