This NCLT coin is part of a three coin set minted by the RAM in 2002 to commemorate the XVII Commonwealth games played in Manchester, England in 2002. The coins were issued in capsules in a rectangular plush case which was inside a cardboard box.


Two coins in the set depict the 17 sports being played at these games. This particular coin has 9 sports depicted on it. The third coin has the Australian Commonwealth Games Association logo on it pad printed in blue.
The Commonwealth Games is a quadrennial, world class sports competition held midway between the Summer Olympic Games. First held in 1930 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Except for 1942 & 1946 the Commonwealth Games have been held at regular four-year intervals in a different British Commonwealth country or dependency.
