2014 50c Coloured Uncirculated Coin 50th Anniversary of Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Studies
The Royal Australian Mint has partnered with the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) to produce this coin celebrating 50 years of research, promotion and preservation of Indigenous societies. This beautiful piece proudly reflects the AIATSIS vision of “A world in which all Indigenous peoples’ knowledge and cultures are recognised, respected and valued.”
HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE
AIATSIS was established in 1964, and has continually sought to commemorate Australia’s Indigenous communities through research, education and preservation of these proud cultures. For 50 years, it has funded programs ensuring the enduring links between Indigenous peoples, their histories and broader Australian society. AIATSIS has actively participated in documenting early Australian languages, setting guidelines for Indigenous research, and undertaking studies that ensure the health, wellbeing and social welfare of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population.
The Royal Australian Mint is proud to be partnering with AIATSIS to produce both a circulating 50 cent coin and this special collectors’ edition. By capturing these iconic Indigenous designs with modern minting technology, and releasing these coins into the pockets and coin collections of many Australians, this beautiful piece will be a symbol of unity and understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures.
