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 50 Cent coin represents Jupiter the 5th Planet and has the Planetary Symbol for Jupiter on the reverse surrounded by circles representing Jupiter's Moons and the spacecraft Galileo which orbited Jupiter for nine years before crashing into the planet. The coin is also circular instead of the usual 12 sided design of the Australian 50 cent coin.
