Opening Australia up to the rest of the world, the Overland Telegraph was finally connected in 1872, and a message was tapped out in Morse code at one end, in Ironstone, NT. 50 minutes later, the message was read aloud in Darwin! This technological construction was soon connected up to an undersea cable out into the world, and, before long, communication with London was just 7 hours away! A modern Marvel!

Celebrating 150 years of this life-changing achievement, the Royal Australian Mint has created a collector $1 coin, limited to just 15,000 ever minted.
