Comments

When miners in the Victorian goldfields gathered behind a wooden stockade in 1854 to rebel against a harsh government, they did not know that their actions, under their leader Peter Lalor, would eventually to a more egalitarian Australian Government.This coin commemorates the uprising under the evocative Eureka Flag, and the the brave miners whose actions led to a more democratic government.
