This NCLT Fine Silver (.999) Proof coin was released by the RAM to celebrate the "Year of the Outback" in 2002. It was issued in a capsule placed inside a plush grey square box with a numbered certificate.

The coin was also issued into circulation as an Aluminium-bronze coin and another version featured in the 2002 Proof set as a Coloured Aluminium-bronze coin.
The year 2002 was designated as the "Year of the Outback", to celebrate that part of Australia that is so internationally famous (but actually lived in by very few Australians). With more than 7000 activities held Australia wide during the year the RAM decided to cash in on the event by releasing the 2002 Year of the Outback dollar.
