[Issued Sunday, 13 May 2018]
We're excited to announce the launch of our new commemorative birth certificates.
Whether you're celebrating a new birth or one from years ago, there's a commemorative design for everyone. Our new commemorative birth certificates are inspired by the feedback we've received from parents who wanted more variety to reflect contemporary Australia. The commemorative designs include an original by Sydney Artist Ken Done (royalties going to UNICEF). Renowned the world over for his brightly coloured portrayals of great Australian landmarks, Ken has brought his signature style to our commemorative birth certificate range.
We also have three new skin tone variations available as part of the best-selling 'baby handprint' commemorative birth certificate design.
"For parents, the commemorative certificates allow them to honour their cultural heritage while celebrating one of the most significant events of their lives," said Registrar Amanda Ianna.
"They are designed for people of all backgrounds, including Indigenous communities, recently arrived migrants and multicultural families who now call NSW home."
Also available are May Gibbs' commemoratives celebrating 100 years of Australia's favourite characters Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. We also have NRL and State of Origin commemorative birth certificate designs available for supporters of every age.
