Comments

Released by the RAM is this Fine Silver (.999) Proof version of the Great Aussie Coin Hunt series of coins that were also issued in  Aluminium-bronze in change, tubes & coincards at Australia Post outlets. This silver coin was issued in a capsule in a 26 coin cased set, with limited edition mintage 250, with certificate. These were retailed at $1250 but are now fetching much higher prices on the secondary market.
 

This coin is the Letter "M" for Meat Pie. Aussies and their meat pies go together like a pie and sauce. They've warmed hands and burnt tongues across the country for decades. From lunchtime bakery runs to halftime stadium snacks, nothing beats a meat pie. In the 1860's,Adelaide became famous for a particular dish sold by street vendors: the 'Pie Floater' - a dish of an upside-down meat pie served in a bowl of pea soup.
