Comments

This NCLT coin was finished in Antique style. Produced by the RAM specifically for the ANDA Melbourne show in 2012. Restricted to a mintage of 2000. Each coin was issued in a numbered coincard.


At the heart of every great Australian City is the town hall. Melbourne's Town Hall is the second to occupy its site, construction of the first stalled after the 1851 gold rush robbed the city of labour. Designed by Joseph Reed and completed in 1870,  today's hall is a hub of Melbourne culture.
