Commemorating famous incidents of Mutiny & Rebellion from Australia’s past, the Royal Australian Mint 3-coin series began with the Mutiny on the Bounty, and continues here with the Rum Rebellion! Interestingly, the Rum Rebellion also involved the protagonist from the The Bounty, William Bligh! Governor of the New South Wales colony in 1808, Bligh tried to break the local trading of rum and other goods. His efforts led to an uprising, and the first (and only) ever military overthrow of an Australian government. Crazy limited mintage of 1500 coins!
