2007: Year of the Surf Lifesaver 20c PNC
2007 PNC - Year of the Surf Lifesaver 20c.
The modern surf lifesaving movement began in 1907 when the NSW Surf Bathing Association was founded. Today, generations of Surf Livesavers both volunteers and paid clubs watch over our social activities on Australia's beaches keeping the community safe in the water. The surf lifesaver has become a symbol of Australia's identity.
100 years later in 2007 the Royal Australian Mint released one dollar and 20c commemorative coins. Both were issued as collector coins and not issued into circulation. This 20c was designed by Tony Dean and the reverse features a female life saver riding the surf.
The stamp design is a holographic $2.45c stamp postmarked 6 March 2007 at Bondi Beach NSW, one of Australia's most famous beaches.
