The discovery of gold in Australia set off a wild chain of events that ultimately led to Federation and the development of modern Australia. An unexpected hero of the gold rush was the hardy camel an animal imported to Australia by enterprising 'Afghan' cameleers responsible for bringing water and supplies to remote miners and settlers in places unreachable by horses.
Camels and their Afghan handlers played crucial roles in the development of Western Australia's gold mining industry. After gold was discovered in Western Australia large numbers of cameleers traveled to the region.
With the 2020 mintmark suite of uncirculated and proofs coins the Royal Australian Mint acknowledges a few of the many Gold Rush stories including Camels of the Goldfields The Welcome Stranger and the Golden Dragons of Bendigo.
