July 21, 2011

2011 Circulation 20c IYV+10

The third commemorative cupro-nickel 20c piece for 2011 is set to be released marking the 10th anniversary of the International Year of Volunteers. Do you recall the 2001 International Year of Volunteers circulating dollar that you can still find in change? This design, now on a 20c piece incorporates the 2001 design adding a +10 and a frame of stylised people holding hands.

This Royal Australian Mint release and worldwide celebrations held throughout 2011 hope to reinvigorate the spirit of volunteerism globally. It recognises those volunteers of all cultures, ages and origins and celebrates their will, innovation and energy. As well as appearing in circulation these coins will also be available in RAM rolls.
