This Fine Silver (.999) Proof NCLT commemorative one dollar coin was released by the Royal Australian Mint to commemorate 50 years of Australian TV. The non-mintmarked silver coin was released in a plush orange box with numbered certificate. The ANDA Show release version with the (A) Counterstamp was released in a plush dark blue box. (Brisbane & Canberra were square boxes, Sydney was a long rectangular box)
On September 16 1956 Bruce Gyngell first appeared on Australian TV making media history uttering those now famous words "Good evening ladies and gentlemen, Welcome to Television". NSW and Victoria were the first states to watch TV, just in time for the broadcast of the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games with the other states following on. Of course this was black and white TV as colour didn't appear until March 1975.
Other silver releases also with limited edition numbered certificates were ...
Sydney ANDA Show in a Blue long rectangular box with "A" for ANDA Privymark
Brisbane ANDA Show in a Blue square box with "A" for ANDA Privymark
Canberra ANDA Show in a Blue Square Box with "A" for ANDA Privymark
Aluminium-bronze versions of the coin were released in a folding coincard with (C), (B), (M), (S) & (TV) Counterstamps at various ANDA & Royal Shows and the Public Gallery Press at the RAM during the year.
