The Centenary boffins are making it known that a 20c coin is going to be struck to celebrate Canberra’s Centenary:
n the lead-up to the launch of the Centenary of Canberra program, Parliamentary Secretary to The Treasurer The Hon Bernie Ripoll MP and ACT Chief Minister Katy Gallagher today announced the production of two commemorative coins which will celebrate the Centenary of Canberra in 2013.
The two coins are being designed and made by the Royal Australian Mint, which is responsible for producing all of Australia’s circulating coins.
One of the coins will be a commemorative circulating 20 cent coin where the vision and ambition of Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin’s plans will be immediately recognisable in the coin’s design and assist in ensuring the centenary celebrations reach all Australians.
The other coin is a $5 for the collectors.
