This Copper-nickel NCLT Coin was initially issued by the RAM as part of a Five-Coin Set to commemorate the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Dodecagon 50 cent Coin. The five coins in the set each display a different effigy of Queen Elizabeth II as used on the 50 cent coin since it was introduced in 1969 as well as including this new Jody Clark Sixth Effigy being introduced on Australian coins in 2019.
This particular 50 cent coin in the set displays the new 6th effigy by Jody Clark which has now also been issued by the RAM at "Pop Up Shops" in Mint Bags of 20 at various locations throughout Australia in 2019 & for general circulation from 2019 onwards.
The Five coins in the special Five-Coin Set are as follows:-
A coin dated 2019 with original 1969-1983 2nd Effigy Arnold Machin obverse with Stuart Devlin reverse. (Gold Plated)
