Sticker - Naturalization Bible Presentation, Presented to Zofia Kozuch by City of Coburg, 19 Oct 1961 Object Reg. No: HT 3468

Printed adhesive label/sticker presented to Zofia Kozuch with a bible at her Naturalization Ceremony on 19 October 1961 in Coburg. It was a gift of the City of Coburg and The British and Foreign Bible Society. The gifting of a bible at naturalization ceremonies was a common practice at this time, although it seems to have been up to the individual local councils. The gifting of a bible was still done by some local councils into the 1980s. However voluntary gifts suggested in the current Department of Immigration 'Australian Citizenship Ceremonies Code' do not include a bible.
Rectangular sticker with typed text and an image of Queen Elizabeth II in the top right corner.
