Australian 2007 Proof Six Coin Year Set - Year of the Surf Lifesaver

Australian Year of the Surf Lifesaver

In the late 1890s and early 1900s there was little need for lifesaving in Australia. It was illegal for people to swim from beaches in daylight hours, and the idea of men and women swimming together provoked moral outrage. However, as a result of campaigns at a number of different beaches along the New South Wales coastline, these concerns began to disappear and Australians began the practice of surf bathing in large numbers.

Unfortunately the dangers of surf bathing soon became apparent. This prompted the formation of the first surf lifesaving club, at Bondi in 1907. The same year, the New South Wales Surf Bathing Association was founded – an organisation that evolved into today’s national association, Surf Life Saving Australia. More than 113,000 men, women and children are members of surf lifesaving clubs and the sight of the familiar red and yellow uniform provides reassurance to millions who enjoy Australia’s beautiful surf beaches.

To honour the service of Australia’s volunteer surf lifesavers, 2007 was declared the national ‘Year of the Surf Lifesaver’. This Australian legal tender proof coin set from the Royal Australian Mint commemorates the year. The $1 coin reverse design features a team rescue in progress.

2007 Six Coin Proof Set

Six great looking coins and one with the dynamic image of a dramatic team rescue. The proof year set is a ‘must have’ Royal Australian Mint coin set. The year 2007 is no exception especially as it honoured the devotion of 113,000 surf lifesaving members who have saved 500,000 lives. It’s of great value and with quality proof finish that collectors demand.
