2021 $2 50th Anniversary of the Australian Aboriginal Flag Al/Br Coloured Uncirculated Coin Pack.The Royal Australian Mint has released this circulating coin that commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Australian Aboriginal Flag - a touchstone of our modern history, an official Flag of Australia and a symbol of pride and unity for our First Nations People.The Australian Aboriginal Flag was first flown on 12 July 1971 at a land rights march in Adelaide's Victoria Square, and appeared again the following year at the beginning of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra. The flag was defiantly carried by Cathy Freeman when she won gold at the 1994 Commonwealth Games, and on 28 May 2000 it flew atop the Sydney Harbour Bridge as more than 250,000 people marched in solidarity beneath it. In 1995 the flag proclaimed an official Flag of Australia and has proudly flown outside official buildings across the nation ever since.Harold Thomas' iconic design has become an emotive symbol of our contemporary history for both Aboriginal Australians and the wider community.The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II sculpted by Jody Clark.Each coin is issued as Australian Legal Tender.Packaged in Credit Card Styled PackDenomination :       $2Quality :                 UncirculatedMetal :                   Aluminium BronzeWeight :                 6.60 gmsDiameter :              20.50 mmMintage :                TBACertificate of Authenticity : DCPL Packaging / Coin Struck by Royal Australian MintPOSSIBLE NOTE : Whilst these coin have come directly from the Mint, there are known issues with the colour application for this year's type.
