Rotary’s Centenary of “Doing Good” DownUnder | Update


Its time to announce a set of new commemorative coins that will put Rotary into the hands of every Australian in our centenary year and beyond.

The Royal Australian Mint has announced that they will launch a pair of coins in 2021 for our centenary. A $1 coin will go into general circulation and also be available in a commemorative collector pack for $15.

A special minting of a silver $5 coin will be available for $100 marking 100 years of Rotary service and launching into the next 100 years.

Ideal for collections, gifts, thankyou’s for speakers, Rotary archives, memorabilia and more.

Many thanks to years of hard work from Hugh Bucknall (Founder R100 Campaign) has now paid off. The new coins were launched in Sydney on 4 February 2021 along with a set of commemorative stamps.

In addition to the coins and stamps which have been released, a book has been put together to commemorate and celebrate the Centennial.  
Members can purchase a book on the Centenary of Rotary in Australia.  Advance orders are now being received for the soon to be published “Humanity in Action – Celebrating 100 years of Rotary Clubs in Australia and its near island neighbours”. 
Pre-orders for this hard cover book should be addressed to PDG Harry Durey – as soon as possible.  Books are limited and cost  $25 plus postage.
