1994 celebrated International Year of the Family and was promoted by the release of a 50 cent coin into circulation by the Royal Australian Mint. This dodecagonal (12 sided) 31.51mm copper (75%) nickel (25%) coin weighed in at 15.55 grams with a plain edge.

The reverse depicts a family as would be drawn by a child and was designed by Carolyn Rosser, the winner of a nation-wide design competition held by the RAM. It also features the United Nations symbol for the event. The standard obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. A variation found in the dies used to strike these coins is the narrow date and wide date varieties.
