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 10 Cent coin represents Earth the 3rd Planet and has the Planetary Symbol for Earth on the reverse surrounded by Topographic, Landscape, Animal & Vegetation features of the planet.
