Folks in Australia must have felt the Australian transpacific cable to have been as momentous as the Trans Atlantic Cable was for the US/UK.

I found a couple of examples of the Australian transpacific cables in the Power House Museum Collection. When visiting Sydney be sure to spend a day at this fine institution.

I was wondering if any of our Australian members have ever seen commemorative jewelry silver similar to what Tiffany/and others did with the Trans Atlantic Cable (click here)?
