Quick Overview

60 Years since the first United Nations Peacekeepers were deployed in Indonesia

Details

In 1947, Australia sent the first United Nations peacekeepers to Indonesia. Since then, more than 30,000 Australians have served in over fifty peacekeeping missions in all corners of the world. Our peacekeepers come from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Police and civilian organisations. With their skill and compassion, they have helped thousands whose lives have been affected by conflict. In recognition of Australia’s commitment to Peacekeeping, the Royal Australian Mint has released a special one dollar uncirculated coin in recognition of this important 60th anniversary. With this release we hope to raise awareness of the courage, professionalism and sacrifices of the Australian Peacekeeper.

The design features the helping hands of Australia cradling the globe with an olive branch. To complete the design another symbol of peace, the white dove, is also included in the image. These universal symbols reflect the accepted ideals of peace and freedom and Australia’s proud role in supporting them.
