Hi was wondering about the availability of the 1953 mcivor shire coronation medal, and whether you would have any information regarding the people who mcivor shire was named after? I am vice chairman of the clan Maciver society and my twin sister lives in melbourne, I am looking at putting some information together for a future issue of the clan magazine, any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi Iain. To obtain a coin you should contact a reliable numismatistics company. These can be found through the Australian Numismatics Dealers Association http://www.anda.com.au/ As for the history of McIvor Shire, there is some tantalising information on the web. The Sydney Morning Herald states that that an expedition led by a Major Mitchell, named McIvor Creek after a member of his party. Unfortunately, it does not give more information on the member of this expeditionary party. http://www.smh.com.au/news/victoria/heathcote/2005/02/17/1108500206527.html You could also contact the National Library of Australia about a book on the history of McIvor Shire. http://catalogue.nla.gov.au/Record/578019
