Comments

This NCLT coin was finished in Antique style. Produced by the RAM specifically for the ANDA Sydney show in 2012. Restricted to a mintage of 2000. Each coin was issued in a numbered coincard.


 At the heart of every great Australian City is the town hall. Rising in Victorian Second Empire style from the site of the old Sydney Burial Ground, Sydney Town Hall is a functional city building housing an elegant archive of the city's art and history, and one of the world's largest pipe organs.
