CoinTwenty Cents 2007 Year of the Life Saver (NCLT)

The Australian 20 cent coin was first introduced with decimalisation on 14 February 1966 when it replaced the pre-decimal Australian florin, to which it is equal in size and mass. The original reverse design by Stuart Devlin has not been changed since its introduction.

The denomination is occasionally used by both the Royal Australian Mint and the Perth Mint to issue collector coins, which are legal tender in Australia - such as this one.

This non-circulating commemorative 20 cents coin marks the centenary of Australia's modern Surf Lifesaving movement. It was issued only in the Year of the Surf Lifesaver 2007 Six Coin Uncirculated Set and in a PNC.

No coins of this type were issued into circulation.
