This NCLT commemorative one dollar coin released by the Royal Australian Mint featuring various mintmarks in 2006 celebrated 50 years of Australian Television. The coin was released in a folding coincard with (C), (B), (M), (S) & (TV) Counterstamps at various ANDA & Royal Shows and the Public Gallery Press at the RAM during the year. Four coins are known to have escaped without a Counterstamp.
On September 16 1956 Bruce Gyngell first appeared on Australian TV making media history uttering those now famous words "Good evening ladies and gentlemen, Welcome to Television". NSW and Victoria were the first states to watch TV, just in time for the broadcast of the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games with the other states following on. Of course this was black and white TV as colour didn't appear until March 1975.
Fine Silver Proof (.999) versions of the coin were also released as follows....
General Issue in an Orange Square box with no Privymark
Sydney ANDA Show in a Blue long box with "A" for ANDA Privymark
Brisbane ANDA Show in a Blue square box with "A" for ANDA Privymark
