Comments

This NCLT coin was finished in Antique style. Produced by the RAM specifically for the ANDA Perth show in 2012. Restricted to a mintage of 2000. Each coin was issued in a numbered coincard.


At the heart of every great Australian City is the town hall. The Perth Town Hall built by free settlers and convicts between 1867 and 1870, reopened in 2005 after extensive restoration. The hall now plays host to official receptions, exhibitions, public gatherings and functions - a far cry from its days as council chambers.
