This NCLT frosted proof type, colour pad printed coin is part of a 10 coin set released by the RAM. They are packaged within a coincard.

The coincard is inside an information-filled pop-up book featuring colour-printing and is the first time for a RAM collection to feature the bronze 1 and 2 cent blanks along with the aluminium bronze $1 and $2 blanks. The addition of two $5 blanks including a bi-metallic one to represent the rings of Saturn makes this set astronomical.

This particular $5 coin represents Saturn the 6th Planet and has the Planetary Symbol for Saturn on the reverse. It is the only Bi-metallic coin in the set and marks the return of Bi-metallic $5 coins which were last issued by the RAM in 2002.
