"Co-operatives are a reminder to the international community that it is possible to pursue both economic viability and social responsibility" - United Nations.
The United Nations has declared 2012 to be the International Year of Cooperatives, with the General Assembly President commending cooperatives on their contribution to food security, rural development and other social services.
Voluntary, democratic, independent and self-sufficient, the co-operative business model has been a major factor in realising economic growth and social development. Since the 1850s, they have been a part of Australia’s socio-economic landscape, employing locals and redistributing profits back into local communities.
To celebrate the important role that co-operatives play in our communities and beyond, the Royal Australian Mint has introduced a commemorative $1 uncirculated coin. The coin features building blocks, which represent the role that co-operatives play in providing stability in a fast-paced global economy.
