Comments

This NCLT Aluminium-bronze $5 coin was minted by the RAM in 2012 in recognition of the 100th Australian Open Men's Champion in 2012. The coin design is a replica of the Championship Medal and a fitting commemoration of a momentous event and Australia's oldest tennis tournament. It was issued in a Coincard.


Australia Post also included the coin in a PNC (10,000 Copies)
