Product Description

2008 $1 Uncirculated Coin - Centenary of Australian Quarantine
2008 marks the centenary of the signing of the Quarantine Act in 1908 – the legislation that provides the basis for human, plant and animal quarantine in Australia
The Centenary of Quarantine recognises 100 years of dedication in managing the risk of pests and diseases entering Australia. Quarantine plays a vital role in helping to conserve Australia’s native flora and fauna, and our multi-billion dollar agricultural and tourism industries.
The Australian Quarantine Inspection Service (AQIS) detector dog (the beagle) is depicted as being on-duty, protecting Australia from pests and diseases by detecting food, plants, animals and their products in passengers’ bags. Our nation is represented in a luggage shape with travel/luggage stickers identifying the key hazard and protection issues for the Australian Quarantine Inspection Service.
