The coin has also been issued in Uncirculated & Proof Year Sets, UNC in WMF Berlin Money Fair Sets, and various Baby UNC & Proof sets. Specimen versions of the coin were issued in Wedding Sets from 2002 to 2009. From 2010 all Wedding Sets were Proof issues. 2019 is the final year for the IRB Obverse.

The 2001 issues featured 3 different versions of the IRB Initials, "IRB" joined, "IRB" spaced and "RB" Joined.
