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.


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 1 Cent coin represents Pluto the 9th (minor) Planet and has the Planetary Symbol for Pluto on the reverse along with crystals and shards of ice to highlight how cold it is on Pluto the planet furthest from The Sun.
