This Fine Silver (.999) Proof NCLT coin was issued by The Royal Australian Mint in 2013 to commemorate 200 years of Australia’s first official currency with a special Holey Dollar and Dump design on the coin. It was issued in a plush grey square box with a numbered certificate. The coin had a "C" Mintmark
The coin depicts a Holey Dollar, with a Dump occupying the central space of the coin.
The Holey Dollar and Dump became Australia’s first coins in an innovative effort to rectify a
coin shortage and stabilise the economy of the fledging colony. The coins were created from
40,000 silver Spanish eight reale coins, which were imported by Governor Lachlan Macquarie
and entered into circulation in 1814.
The Ram also released the coin in Aluminium-bronze as follows :-
