Comments

The Norman Sillman heraldic emblem of the 'Celtic Cross' reverse was originally introduced in 1996 with the Maklouf third portrait on the obverse. This second edition was struck for circulation and can also be found in Annual Coin Sets in both Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated quality. The coin was also issued in silver proof, reverse frosted silver proof and silver piedfort.
