A small article, entitled “All Our Own Work“, discussing some the NAV’s medallions, appeared in the 1988 edition of the Australian Numismatist, the NAV’s journal at that time. This is available as a PDF by selecting the cover image.
A more in depth article appeared in the 1996 edition of the Australian Numismatist, from which some of the information here has been sourced.
