The RAM released this NCLT Fine Silver (.999) proof coin to Commemorate the 75th Anniversary in 2007 of the completion of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It was released in a capsule inside a plush square black box with numbered certificate.



Aluminium-bronze versions of this NCLT coin were also released by the RAM to commemorate this event in a folding coincard with (C), (B), (M), & (S) Counterstamps at various ANDA & Royal Shows and the Public Gallery Press at the RAM during the year.
NOTE: "B" and "S" Counterstamps also exist with a shallow letter variety.

The 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.
