On January 28, 2013, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued ten new stamps celebrating Australia's 225th Anniversary. In order to populate the new and undiscovered world of Australia, early settlers had to travel enormous distances. From the time the first British settlers arrived in Australia in 1788, many thousands of hardy men and women from Britain risked their lives by sailing in primitive and severe conditions for the promise of a better life. Although many of the early settlers were criminals sent to penal colonies in Australia from the British Isles, an 1851 gold strike in Victoria made Australia particularly attractive to those seeking their fortunes. Further gold strikes in the 19th century, together with plentiful and fertile land, attracted many more settlers. The ruling monarch of the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth II, is the head of the British Commonwealth of Nations and retains figurative power over Australia.
