Mr McCormack who has responsibility for the Royal Australian Mint said the coin is a symbolic reminder of the substantial roles people with disabilities play in our society and the importance of providing support to those in need.
“International Day of People with Disability is a United Nations sanctioned day held on 3 December each year celebrating and recognising the achievements, contributions and abilities of people with disability,” Mr McCormack said.
“The Royal Australian Mint has a long and proud history of reaching out to many Australians with important messages through their commemorative coinage and today’s coin release is yet another fantastic example of its work.
“The coin features an artistic extension of the International Day of People with Disability logo which is used globally to encourage recognition and inclusivity.
