To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Rotary Clubs in Australia, the Royal Australian Mint is proud to announce the release of two commemorative coins. These coins represent a unique opportunity for Rotarians and for those whose lives have been touched by Rotary to celebrate this incredible milestone.
Since 1921, Rotary’s footprint in Australia has expanded to over 1100 clubs nationally with more than 30,000 members. The first Australian charter was Melbourne based followed by Sydney. The Australian clubs are part of a broader movement of 1.2 million Rotarians in nearly 33,000 clubs around the world.
Rotarians are dedicated to making the world a better place by promoting goodwill and peace, cultural understanding and community service.
The organisation also sends volunteer surgeons and other health workers to the Asia-Pacific countries to provide free surgical treatment for patients who would otherwise not be able to access these services.
