In 1988 the Royal Australian Mint produced it’s first 5 dollar coin commemorating the opening of New Parliament House in Canberra. Three million of these uncirculated aluminium bronze 5 dollar coins were commissioned and distributed by the Commonwealth Bank at face value in 1988 in celebration of the opening of New Parliament House.
They were issued in 2 types of similar packaging, a sealed cellophane type, and a PVC flip. Because they were so easy to obtain from any Commonwealth Bank branch and quite special at the time these were collected and talked about, sparking interest in collecting that has spanned decades.
A special 1988 Bicentennial Coin and Note Collection were issued by the Reserve Bank. It contained a $2 coin, this $5 coin, a $10 Silver coin, a $2 Note, a $5 Note and a special commemorative $10 note.
A Proof version of the coin was issued in a capsule in a greyplush case set ina white box with a certificate.
A few were released in a limited edition AGC Presentation Box as part of a special mint run for the Australian Guarantee Corporation.

A Sterling Silver (.925) version of the coin was also released in a plush box.
