This RAM NCLT coin has been released for the 2018 Berlin World Money Fair in a credit card sized coincard.
Last year the corresponding coin was a simple Gold Plating of the usual 14 sided 50 cent Lunar Year Coin.
However this year the RAM have changed things around a bit. This time they have reverted to a standard 12 sided planchet for the WMF Issue and used a different reverse design to the one used on the plain copper nickel 2018 50 cent Lunar Year Coin. (See link below to view the 14 sided 2018 coin)
The reverse design on this release is the same as the reverse design on the RAM 2018 $1 Lunar Year coin. (See link below to see the 2018 $1 coin with same reverse) This coin is fully Gold Plated and was released on a coincard. Mintage is limited to 5000.
There have now been seven yearly releases of the Lunar Year 50 cent coins by the RAM. This is the second WMF Gold Plated edition.
