This Fine Silver (.999) Proof NCLT coin was minted in 2006 by the RAM to mark the significant Queens Baton Relay event in Australia as part of the build up to the Commonwealth Games to be held in Melbourne.
The Queen's Baton Relay has been a much loved tradition of the Commonwealth Games since 1958. The baton carries Her Majesty's message to the athletes from Buckingham Palace, London, to the opening ceremony. The coin was issued in a capsule in a plush case.
An Aluminium-bronze version of the coin was also issued by the RAM in a large coincard. It was also released by Australia Post in a PNC and was included in a special 18 coin folder.
