In 1998 the RAM released this NCLT coin celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Lord Baron Howard Florey. The coin was available as a MYO (Mint Your Own) coin with a "C" Mintmark in the visitor gallery of the Royal Australian Mint and came with a small coincard to house it.
It was also available from the Mobile Press at various Royal/ANDA Shows as follows:-
Adelaide - "A" Mintmark in a Purple Folder
Brisbane - "B" Mintmark in a Pink Coin Folder
Melbourne - "M" Mintmark in a Pale Yellow Folder
Sydney - "S" Mintmark in a Grey Coin Folder
A version of the coin was also released in .925 Silver in a capsule in a square plush box. The silver version had the, at the time, new Ian Rank Broadly effigy of the Queen on the obverse side
Born in Adelaide, South Australia in 1898 Howard Florey is famously known as perhaps Australia's greatest ever scientist and having shared in the discovery of the anti biotic penicillin with Ernst Chain and Alexander Fleming. In fact he shared the Nobel Prize for Medicine with these gentlemen in 1945 for the discovery and extraction of penicillin.
