We’re getting a 20c coin for the Centenary

johnboy 3 September 2012 6

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.

Wow.

Is that the lamest centenary token ever?

Could have been a 5 cent coin! My God, that was almost glass half full. They weren’t wrong about that Prozac flavoured Stolichnaya.

Robyn “Canberra Diaspora Illiteracy” Archer’s aristocratic profile will look regal and fabulous on the reverse of course …

Can’t we get on the $1 coins? It would make more sense being the centenary and all.

Just two coins? I would’ve thought they’d make thousands of them. Then again, I suppose $5.20 is about right…

Boom tish.
