Comments

In 2019 the RAM released this NCLT Fine Silver (.999) Proof Coin to Commemorate Australia's Bushranger Era. The coin was issued in limited numbers in a capsule held within a plush black box with numbered certificate. It has a "C" Mintmark.


Colonial Australia was a dangerous place, with renegades known as Bushrangers roaming the roads and towns. The exploits of Australia's most notorious bushranging gang; Ned Kelly with his companions Dan Kelly, Joe Byrne and Steve Hart are part of Australia's folklore. During a time of social and political unrest, the Kelly Gang with their iconic armour sparked a reputation that passed into legend. With this coin the RAM remembers the nefarious Kelly Gang. Their anti-establishment stance; courage under fire and sympathy for the underdog, have become characteristic of the Australian 'larrikin' identity.

The RAM also released an Aluminium-bronze version of this coin In a  Four Coin Set with"C" Mintmark and [B], [M] & [S] Privymarks.

A "C" Mintmarked Fine Gold $10 coin with the same reverse was also issued (See links)

An Aluminium-bronze coin with the same reverse but with a different obverse (Jody Clark 6th Effigy) was issued with (B), (M), (S) & (MAP) Counterstamps during 2019 at various RAM Pop Up Shop events in a Coincard.
