Comments

This Fine Silver (.999) NCLT Proof coin was issued by the RAM in a capsule inside a plush square black case with a numbered certificate. The coin commemorates the Australian Wheat Industry and replicates the design that adorned the tiny 16mm pre-decimal silver threepence from 1938 to 1964. The coin included a "C" for Canberra Mintmark.



An Aluminium-bronze version of the coin was issued as follows :-
In a Four Coin UNC Mint set with "C" Mintmark and [B], [M] & [S] Privymarks.
In a folding coincard at the ANDA Show in Perth with a (P) Counterstamp (Pre struck at the RAM)
In a folding coincard at At the ANDA Show in Brisbane using the Mobile Press with a (B) Counterstamp
In a folding coincard at  the ANDA Show in Sydney using the Mobile Press with a (S) Counterstamp
In a folding coincard at the ANDA Show in Melbourne using the Mobile Press with a (M) Counterstamp
A further Aluminium-bronze issue was the Bluebell Counterstamp which was applied to a "C" Mintmarked coin at the "Enlighten" event in Canberra and also issued in a coincard.
