Comments

This NCLT 50 cent coin was issued by the RAM in 2013 to commemorate 100 Years of Australian Banknotes and depicts images taken from an original 1 pound (£) Note. The coin was included in a three coin set that also had two other 20 cent coins that were also issued to celebrate old Australian Banknotes as part of the series. (KM#1961 & KM#1962). All three coins were housed in large coincards inside a slipcase.
