Shaping National Identity


The 1906 'Shaping National Identity' set pays tribute to the contributions made to Australian culture by significant people or events. The set of five $5 pieces was struck by the Royal Australian Mint for the Masterpieces in Silver collection and as a result each coin is made from Sterling silver. Those chosen to feature on the coins are believed to have played an important role in inspiring and motivating others on both an individual basis and a national one. Those featured include Horse Racing, Henry Lawson, Dame Nellie Melba, The Stockman and Tom Roberts.
