On Tuesday 14 May 2019, the Royal Australian Mint will launch a new coin series titled ‘Mutiny & Rebellion’. The first release in this three coin series reflects on the ‘Mutiny on the Bounty’.
This series acknowledges events and people from Australia’s tempestuous colonial era who blazed into mutiny and rebellion. The second and third coins in 'Mutiny & Rebellion' series will examine the ‘Rum Rebellion’ and the 'Eureka Stockade'. Each of these events contributed to the eventual rule of law and an egalitarian democracy within Australia.
Today, the Royal Australian Mint (the Mint) launched the first coins of a new limited edition commemorative coin series, featuring the mutiny on the HMS Bounty, The Rum Rebellion and The Eureka Stockade at the National Maritime Museum in Sydney.
