Comments

This coin differs from KM# 69a in that it is nickel-plated steel and magnetic.

The 1993 coins are rare since they are pattern coins for testing purposes. They were in coin sets and are now in circulation since some have been taken out of the original sets. The Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority suggested that its circulation rate is below 1%.
