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 1938 Silver Florin which had the updated Australian Coat of Arms, however the obverse has the 1998 Ian Rank-Broadley fourth Portrait of Queen Elizabeth the Second.
An interesting side note about this Australian Coat of Arms is that the one representing South Australia on the lower left is incorrect. It should have been a Piping Shrike but instead showed three stalks of wheat and a rising sun.
