Comments

This NCLT coin which commemorates 100 years of the Trans-Australian Railway was issued by the RAM in the Four Coin "C" mintmark & [B], [S], [M] Privymark set for 2017.

Crossing the wide brown land of Australia was an insurmountable task 100 years ago. With challenges for transport, freight and communication, the east and west coasts were divided by more than distance. The Trans-Australian Railway line, completed in 1917, united the young nation after federation like never before.

Also available from the Visitor Press on the ground floor of the RAM in Canberra with "C" mintmark for $3.00.

Issued at the Royal Sydney Easter Show with a (S) Counterstamp.
Issued at the Royal Melbourne Show with a (M) Counterstamp.
Issued at the Royal Brisbane Exhibition Show with a (B) Counterstamp.
Issued at Regional RAM Pop up Shops with a (MAP) of Australia Counterstamp.

The "C" mintmark $1 was included in a ballot-only limited edition of 1,500 sets of 2017 uncirculated coins, available only to members of the "Legends" RAM Loyalty Program.
