Comments

This NCLT coin is a tribute to one of the most celebrated and influential figures in Australian history. It was issued by the RAM in a large collector coincard.
 

In the 200 years since Sir Henry Parkes’ birth, much has been said about the man whose tireless efforts gave us the nation of Australia as we know it today. Described as ‘a colonial colossus’ and ‘the most commanding figure in Australian politics,’ he has been best known to generations of Australians as the Father of Federation. Sir Henry served as Premier of New South Wales five times between 1872 and 1891.
