This is the first issue in Inspirational Australians dollar coin series. It recognises Mary MacKillop a staunch and often rebellious champion of Christianity who had a determination to provide education in Australia. She dedicated her life to the Sisters of St Joseph the first religious order to be founded by an Australian. Despite a vow of poverty and dependence on Divinity Mary managed to make education available to the poor and the marginalised people of rural Australia. She would often follow farmers railway workers and miners into isolated areas and endure the same hardships while educating their children. By 1877 over forty schools were in operation in South Australia Queensland and New South Wales. Today there are MacKillop schools in almost all states of Australia. The reverse design features an image of Mary Mackillop with a guiding hand on the future generation. The coin is housed sealed on a colourful see-both-sides cardboard pack.
