Melbourne Commonwealth Games


The XVIII Commonwealth Games took place in Melbourne, Australia between the 15th - 26th March 2006. The Games included 24 disciplines held over the eleven days. There were athletes from 71 competing nations and territories. The opening ceremony contained the journey of the Queens Baton, which had travelled over 180,000 kilometres, continued down the Yarra River in the hands of the 16 Australian Football League captains. The baton was then handed to football legend Ron Barassi, then Olympic great Herb Elliott before entering the packed stadium. The baton travelled around the stadium in the hands of athletic champions Catherine Freeman, Ron Clarke and Marjorie Jackson-Nelson. The baton was presented to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by the Governor of Victoria, and former Olympian, John Landy.

The Royal Australian Mint commemorated the XVIII Commonwealth Games with the release of this sixteen coin series with each coin featuring one of the sports played.
