In a dramatic clash between elite military and government, the ‘Rum Rebellion’ of 1808 was Australia’s only successful military coup – and also paved the way for the rule of law in Australia. The overthrowing of Governor William Bligh by the New South Wales Corps is commemorated by the Royal Australian Mint with these two coins, marking a rebellion that changed Australia’s colonial history.
Part of the Mutiny and Rebellion series.
