This collector set, designed in consultation with Volunteering Australia, the national peak body on volunteering,
and was officially launched at a special celebration breakfast at the Mint attended by over 100 representatives of volunteer and community organisations.
This tribute set salutes over 4 million Australians who give freely of their time to help others and benefit their communities with the theme:
'Making a Difference'.
The Royal Australian Mint has said that since the phenomenal success of the Sydney Olympics
the world increasingly saw the volunteering spirit as a defining quality in the Australian character.
But as we all know the truth is that the volunteering spirit has always been there,
it's just in true laid back Aussie style, these remarkable individuals go about their duties with neither fuss nor fanfare.
The glittering coin set makes a fitting and lasting accolade to these dedicated individuals who together form the heart and soul of Australian society.
