Historical information

This medallion was struck to commemorate the Shire of Eltham, 1871 to 1994; issued upon cessation of the Shire of Eltham as a local government body following the widespread dismissal of councils throughout Melbourne by the Kennett Liberal Government. Parts of the Shire were redistributed to Banyule Shire and a new Nillumbik Shire was formed which took in Eltham township.
