The RAM commemorated the 30th birthday of the iconic Stuart Devlin design 5 kangaroo dollar coin, affectionately known as the "Mob of Roos", by releasing a pad printed coloured version of the standard coin. The only place this coin can be found is in the 2014 year Mint Set which features this Aluminium-bronze version of the pad printed coloured coin. (KM#489.2).
