The Royal Australian Mint’s commemorative decimal currency products issued in early 2016 were instant hits with collectors and the public. Such was the demand that collectors expressed a wish for an exclusive, low mintage, precious metal 50th anniversary coin.
This 99.9% silver proof 50 cent coin will satisfy collector demands.
Currency changeover ranks high as a milestone in the history of a nation. Australia’s changeover to decimal currency in 1966 is no exception, with memories cherished by those lucky enough to have experienced the historic event.
The round shape is that of the original 50 cent coin before the dodecagonal shape was introduced in 1969. The Australian Coat of Arms design is stunningly selectively gold plated on this fine silver coin.
The coin is housed in an attractive presentation case with outer box and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The Royal Australian Mint will release no more than 7,500 of the 2016 50th Anniversary Round 50c Selectively Gold Plated Silver Coin.
