Comments

With surfing so ingrained in Australian culture as a sport and pleasure activity, as well as celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Surfing Australia the Royal Australian Mint pressed a coin in tribute to this wonderful sport and in celebration of this great milestone. This is a NCLT50 cent coin issued in a card and also in a PNC.
