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 20 Cent coin represents Uranus the 7th Planet and has the Planetary Symbol for Uranus on the reverse surrounded by Irregular Jagged & Hexagonal shapes.
