Comments

This Fine Silver (.999) Proof NCLT coin was released as Coin #3, part of the 2004 "Masterpieces in Silver" set.  This set recognises 20 Years of the Australian Dollar coin since 1984.

The design of this coin is one that was trialed on a pattern coin that was proposed for the Australian Dollar coin but was not used in favour of the famous iconic MOR (Mob of Roos), Five Bounding Kangaroos design.
