Sales History


The Australian Taxation Office commemorative issue celebrates 100 years of the office's achievements. The reverse was deigned by the Royal Australian Mint and shows the official centenary logo and message. The legend reads "WORKING FOR ALL AUSTRALIANS" as well as a large "100" and "The Australian Taxation Office Centenary 2010"and finally the denomination "20 CENTS". The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II, right-facing and crowned. It contains the legend "ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2010". There were a total of 5 million coins minted bearing the Australian Taxation Offices' centenary message.

The Australian Taxation Office celebrated its centenary year on the 12th November 2010. It would have been on the 11th but a clash with Remembrance Day meant that it needed to be moved as a mark of respect. The event marks a 100 year history of helping to build Australia into the place it is today. The office is proud of its commitment and endeavour that has made it so successful. The slogan for the centenary is 'Working for all Australians' which reflects the office's ideals and beliefs. From its humble beginnings, it has grown to be an internationally respected organisation that was first proposed by then Prime Minister Andrew Fisher (Australian Government, 2013) to fund important social policies and support the old and disabled Australians. This year was an opportunity to reflect on achievements made possible through fairly administering an effective tax system. In the future it will continue to protect and deliver one of the world's leading tax and superannuation administrations by listening to and working with the community.
