This Fine Silver (.999) Proof NCLT Commemorative coin was issued as part of the 2007 Fine Silver Six coin Proof set which contained silver versions of coin releases in 2007. A standard 5 cent, standard 10 cent, this 20 cent commemorative, a standard 50 cent, a commemorative $1 and a standard $2 were part of the set. The coins were issued in capsules in a beautiful wooden box.
Copper-nickel versions of this coin were issued in the 2007 Proof, 2007 UNC & 2007 Berlin WMF Sets, as well as an Australia Post PNC. None were released into circulation.
The actual coin commemorates the modern Australian life saving movement which began in 1907 when the NSW Surf Bathing Association was founded. Today, generations of Surf Livesavers, both volunteers and paid clubs, watch over our social activities on Australia's beaches keeping the community safe in the water. The surf lifesaver has become a symbol of Australia's identity.
