Comments

This NCLT Aluminium-bronze uncirculated finish coin was released by the RAM in 2011 in a coincard to celebrate the visit to Australia by the reigning Monarch Queen Elizabeth II.


A special pocket was included in the coincard to insert the circulating commemorative 1 Dollar ($1) CHOGM coin.

This was the sixteenth visit to Australia by Queen Elizabeth the Second and this is depicted on the coin by the sixteen commonwealth crowns that appear on the reverse of the $5 coin.
