For the past 100 years, Australian Red Cross has been woven into the fabric of Australian life.
Founded on an enduring spirit of volunteerism, Australian Red Cross is an impartial, neutral and independent organisation.
It strives to offer assistance without discrimination, and to alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found, regardless of nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions.
The Australian Red Cross is part of the International Red Cross Red Crescent Movement, the world’s largest humanitarian movement, with tens of millions of members and volunteers operating all over the world in more than 188 countries.
No more than 5,000 of these 100th Anniversary Red Cross 1oz Silver Proof Coins will be released.
The reverse features a series of black and white photographs presenting the broad cross-section of society that the Australian Red Cross assists.
The design includes an image of a World War I nurse, the inscription THE POWER OF HUMANITY and 100 YEARS PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE with the Australian Red Cross Logo.
Each coin is housed in a presentation case with an illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
