Released by the RAM in 1991 to commemorate the State of Tasmania is this $10 Sterling Silver Proof (.925) coin. It was released in a capsule in plush green case.
Uncirculated versions were also released in a Large coloured Coincard.
This 1991 $10 coin is the sixth in a series which features the coat of arms of the individual States and Territories of the Commonwealth of Australia. The coin features the official Tasmania Coat of Arms.
Tasmania, Australia's Island State, contains not only huge areas of forest wilderness, but also untamed wild rivers, peaceful mountain lakes, fertile rolling farmlands and sophisticated cities. European settlement has left its mark with many of Australia's oldest historic buildings. In fact Hobart is Australia's second oldest capital, founded in 1804.
