Australia Day Achievement Medallions


The Australia Day Achievement Medallions and Lapel Pins are an inspiring way to acknowledge the contributions and performance of public sector staff. They provide government departments and agencies with the opportunity to acknowledge the contribution of their staff for outstanding performance of special projects or in performance of their core duties.

Australia Day Achievement Medallions and Lapel Pins are generally presented to recipients in the lead up to Australia Day. You may consider hosting an Australia Day event in your department and recognise recipients by including a presentation ceremony. A more formal event may include a guest speaker or presenter from your organisation, having the national flags (Australian, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islands) raised or integrating Australian writing and music.

Many organisations circulate the list of recipients and their citations after the presentation
