Comments

The RAM produced this NCLT coin in 2000, the year of the Sydney Olympics, it was released in a coincard.

    

In 2000 there was a joint Numismatic/Philatelic Trade Fair held in Sydney and Canberra from September 15 to 28 coinciding with the Olympic games. It's name was Olymphilex. The Royal Australian Mint attended both venues with it's portable press, striking coins to order for show patrons. It is the only Australian $1 coin with smooth edging instead of the normal interrupted reeding and has lettering denoting where it was minted, either Sydney or Canberra.
