This 2019 $5 Silver Proof Coin, inspired by the design of the 1919 Australian Peace Medal, acknowledges the centenary of this meaningful historic event.

Justice, which was presented to Australian schoolchildren in honour of the occasion.

Among the 32 signatories of the treaty, was the Prime Minister of Australia, Billy Hughes. This marked the first time that Australian officials had participated in the negotiation of an international treaty. Four British Dominions, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Canada, were recognised as founding members of the newly formed League of Nations, acknowledging their independence under international law.

As a result of the Treaty of Versailles, Australia was ready to take its place as a fully international diplomatic nation.
