As Australia prepares to host the Netball World Cup 2015, the Royal Australian Mint has released a spectacular silver domed coin and a celebratory 20c uncirculated coin. These coins are a testimony to Australia’s connection to netball and the continued growth and impact of the sport globally.
HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE
In August 2015, Australia will host the world’s pinnacle netball championship, the 14th Netball World Cup and for the second time, the Netball World Cup will be hosted in Sydney.
Held every four years since the world cup’s inception in 1963, Australia previously hosted the Netball World Cup on two occasions, in Perth in 1967 and in Sydney in 1991. Having been victorious on both occasions, Australia will face the 2015 championships with an advantage to secure their 11th Netball World Cup victory. The ten day event will showcase the world’s netball elite from 16 countries, all vying for the
championship trophy and netball’s greatest honour. As the most popular women’s sport in Australia and with an estimated one million players nationwide, Australia’s association with netball is enduring.
