Hi Amanda, thanks for your enquiry. Many coins, tokens and medals were designed and distributed both nationally and internationally to honour this event. The Melbourne City Council was one council that had a commemorative medal made. To see more examples of these have a look at Australian Historical Medals, 1788-1988, by L.J. Carlise.
