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 Fine Silver (.999) Proof NCLT Commemorative coin was issued as part of the very first Fine Silver Six coin Proof Set in 2003 which contained silver versions of circulation coin releases in 2003. A standard 5 cent, standard 10 cent, a commemorative 20 cent, this commemorative 50 cent, a commemorative $1 and a standard $2 were part of the set. The coins were issued in capsules in a beautiful jarra wooden box.
Copper-nickel versions of this coin (mintage 13,927,000) were released into circulation and also issued in the 2003 Year Proof & UNC and the 2003 Proof & UNC Baby sets.
The actual coin commemorates and pays tribute to the many Volunteers in Australian society.
