IYC 2012 Coin

In a one off coup for Australian co-ops, as The Hon Bill Shorten, Assistant Treasurer reminded last November, Australia was ‘the only nation in the world to produce a collectible coin celebrating the UN International Year of Co-operatives in 2012, as we recognise the impact of the co-operative business model on the burgeoning strength of the Australian economy on the world stage".
