The Royal Australian Mint has released a special 50 cent Fine Silver Proof coin to commemorate the work of Afghan Cameleers. The coin was issued in a capsule in a plush case with limited edition certificate.
The Afghan cameleers who travelled to Australia from 1859 made a significant contribution to the exploration of Australia’s inland, and to the development of Australia as a multicultural nation.
A copper-nickel version of the coin was also issued. (See link)
