This Fine Silver (.999) NCLT Proof coin was issued by the RAM in 2004 in a capsule in plush yellow box with a limited edition certificate.
The coin was designed by 12 year old John Serrano, a year 5 student at St Peter's Primary School in East Keilor Victoria. John was the winner of the Mint's Primary School Student Coin Design Competition of which there were just under 2,600 entries. The theme for the design was "Australia". It was the public who determined the winner by voting on the RAM website.
A Copper-nickel version of the coin was released into general circulation, mintage 10,577,000
The same coin was also released in UNC condition in a small coincard (See link)
