Comments

This NCLT coin was released by the RAM in a coincard. This commemorative coin recognises those who devoted their lives to manning and maintaining lighthouses in Australia and celebrates their contribution to a century of aids to navigation. When the Commonwealth of Australia officially accepted responsibility for all landfall and coastal lights around Australia, it comprised of 167 lighthouses, 103 of which were manned. Since 1991, the function of maritime aids to navigation has been the responsibility of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.
