2019 RAM 50 Cent Fine Silver Proof Coin - Year of Indigenous Languages

  • To recognise 2019 as the International Year of Indigenous Languages, the Royal Australia Mint has issued a Fine Silver Proof 50 cent coin in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies(AIATSIS). This coin acknowledges Australia's unique Indigenous languages, and the efforts being undertaken to preserve these important parts of Australian Indigenous culture.
  • The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2019 as the International Year of Indigenous Languages. In Australia, as in the world, Indigenous languages are under threat. From over 250 individual language groups in Australia in 1788, almost 130 have now become extinct with many more under threat. Languages are crucial to the identity of Indigenous Australians as well as being an important part of Australia's history and culture.
