Comments

2009 marked the 60th Anniversary since the enactment of the Australian Citizenship Act of 1948. This NCLT coin released by the RAM was issued to commemorate this event. The coin was issued in Coincards either Green or Blue in colour. The coin was issued with [B], [M] & [S] Privymarks and a "C" Mintmark.
The coin shown above has the [M] Privymark.


The reverse featured the heads of seven new Australian Citizens (each representing an Australian state) from Czechoslovakia, Denmark, France, Greece, Norway, Spain and Yugoslavia who became Australian citizens in the first-ever Australian Citizenship ceremony held in Canberra, the nations capital in 1949. Their heads are shown resting in the grooves of the federation star, the star symbolically depicts their raised hands and their new Australian pride is shown on their faces. This central design is surrounded by an Australian map cut into squares for each state.  

A Fine Silver Proof (.999) version of the coin with a "C" mintmark was released in a capsule in a plush box.
