The RAM released this NCLT Fine Silver Proof (.999) coin in 2009 to commemorate the 60th Anniversary since the enactment of the Australian Citizenship Act of 1948. It was released with a "C" mintmark in a capsule in a plush box with certificate.
The reverse featured the heads 7 new Australian citizens (each representing an Australian state) from Czechoslovakia, Denmark, France, Greece, Norway, Spain and Yugoslavia who became Australian citizens in the first-ever Australian citizenship ceremony held in Canberra, the nations capital in 1949. Their heads are shown resting in the grooves of the federation star, the star symbolically depicts their raised hands and their new Australian pride is shown on their faces. This central design is surrounded by an Australian map cut into squares for each state.
An Aluminium-bronze version was released in a coincard with [B], [M] & [S] Privymarks and a "C" Mintmark.
