Comments

The Australian Fine Silver (.999) Decimal Proof set was first introduced by the RAM in 2003.

However, the first time the "Mob of Roos" (with IRB obverse) coin was included in the set was in 2004.
This particular set also included a 5 cent, 10 cents, 20 cents, 50 cents & $2 Fine Silver coin.

This Fine Silver (.999) Proof version of the standard definitive "Mob of Roos" reverse 1 Dollar coin is the same design as the aluminum-bronze coin used in everyday circulation in Australia. The Jody Clark Obverse is the sixth effigy of QEII and is used on this 2020 edition of this iconic $1 coin.
 

The standard Aluminium-bronze version of the $1 coin which this Silver coin is based on was introduced into circulation in Australia in 1984 to replace the old $1 Note introduced in 1966 which in turn replaced the old £sd Ten Shilling note.
