Australia Day Achievement Medallions


Australia Day Achievement Medallions give government departments a chance to acknowledge staff for outstanding performance in special projects or core duties.

Medallions are generally presented in the lead up to Australia Day. You may want to consider including a presentation ceremony in your department's existing Australia Day event.

A separate, formal event may include a guest speaker or presenter from your organisation, the national flags (Australian, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) or Australian writing and music.

Many departments circulate the list of recipients and their citations after the presentation.

How the program works

The criteria for awarding medallions are determined by the department presenting them.

Medallions, including a presentation box, can be purchased for $35 each (including GST).

You can download a Certificate of Achievement template  to accompany medallions.
