Comments

This NCLT Fine Silver (.999) NCLT coin was released as part of the 1998 Masterpieces of Silver set ("Coins of the 20th Century ") which contained eight twenty-cent/florin sized coins and a pre-decimal crown.

The reverse of this stunning coin is a replica of the original 1934 Victoria & Melbourne Centenary commemorative Silver Florin, however the obverse has the 1998 Ian Rank-Broadley fourth Portrait of Queen Elizabeth the Second.
