The 2009 Citizenship coin was issued to commemorate sixty years since the enactment of the Australian Citizenship Act.
The reverse, designed by Wojciech Pietranik, features the faces of seven
new Australians along with the
"60th ANNIVERSARY OF AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP - ONE DOLLAR". The obverse
features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with the standard
"ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2009".
The coin was initially released with an uncirculated and silver
piece featuring the 'C' for Canberra mint-mark. Some months later three more uncirculated pieces featuring the 'S' for
Sydney, 'B' for Brisbane, and 'M' for Melbourne privy mark were released.
Canberra (C) mint-mark on 2009 (Citizenship) one dollar piece.
