A bronze medalet issued to New South Wales school children

A bronze medalet was issued to New South Wales school children. As an added bonus they were granted the day off school to take part in this important historic event.
The personification of Australia is draped in the Australian national flag and surrounded by sprigs of wattle. This illustrated souvenir program lists the celebratory events of the fleet entry on 4 October 1913.
