Comments

This NCLT 50 cent coin, limited to a mintage of 5,000, was minted by the RAM and released by Australia Post in a PNC to commemorate the XXI Commonwealth Games held from 4th April 2018 to 15th April 2018.

This version of the coin has the standard Copper-nickel finish in contrast to the Gold plated version that the RAM released in a coincard.  

One of Australia's greatest honours in 2018 is hosting the XXI Commonwealth Games. The stunning Gold Coast, with its golden sun and sandy beaches, will host athletes from 70 nations and territories competing in 23 different sports.
