Comments

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 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 $1 coin represents Neptune the 8th Planet and has the Planetary Symbol for Neptune on the reverse.
