2017 50c Pride & Passion Cu-Ni Coin Pack Referendum 50th Anniversary & Mabo 25th Anniversary
Struck to commemorate two critical moments in Australia's history
Issued by the Royal Australian Mint ? Australian legal tender
A unique, one-year-only type ? a must for a complete collection
Set within an informative, credit card-style pack by Downies
This important commemorative 50c coin honours two critical moments in Australia's history with a one-year-only legal tender type. Issued in 2017, it commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Referendum, and the 25th anniversary of the historic Mabo land rights case.
The coin was struck by the Royal Australian Mint, and bears a symbolic reverse motif. A portrait of Eddie Koiki Mabo takes centre stage. It's a stirring reminder of the man who took to court to challenge the long-held concept of terra nullius.
