Released by the RAM in 1992 to commemorate the Northern Territory is this $10 Sterling Silver Proof (.925) coin. It was released in a capsule in plush pink case.


Uncirculated versions were also released in a Large coloured Coincard.


This 1992 $10 coin is the seventh in a series which features the coat of arms of the individual States and Territories of the Commonwealth of Australia. The coin features the official Northern Territory Coat of Arms.

The Northern Territory is home to a multitude of Australia's precious national treasures. Ayers Rock, Kakadu National Park & Katherine Gorge to name a few. Every year hundreds and thousands of tourists flock to experience the arid, mystical regions of the Red Centre, the lush tropical wetlands of the Top End, and all of the amazing and beautiful sights in between.
