In my earlier search, I overlooked this one
The 2001 "International Year of the Volunteer" dollar. I had found the 2003 "Australia Year of the Volunteer". You have to wonder if the "committee for the year of the volunteers" gets paid.

Volunteering is an important cause given that it also got a 50 cent piece. It features a kaleidoscope of volunteers from emergency services, meals on wheels, shelters, charities (e.g. clothes donations), conservationists, sports volunteers, big brother/big sister, firefighters, and surf lifesavers.

It doesn't stop there. There's also the 2003 Australia year of the volunteer 20 cent piece. They don't just hand out 20 cent pieces. Not even the queen has a commemorative 20 cent coin!
