A NCLT Silver (.999) Proof version of the coin was also released in a plush Square box with certificate.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge has become a national icon for Australia recognised all over the world. It was opened on 19th March 1932 after 8 years of construction with planning beginning in 1912. At it's highest point the bridge measures 134 meters high and spans 503 meters with a total length of 1150 meters. The bridge was built from each side with approach spans erected first then a main arch. Both sides of the arch were joined on August 19th 1930 much to the admiration of Sydneysiders.
