Royal Australian Mint’s Uncirculated Year Set tradition continues with this new celebration of Australia’s circulating coin designs.
The set contains 2012-dated 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c and $1 coins portraying Stuart Devlin’s decimal designs introduced in 1966. It also includes a 2012 $2 coin, designed by Horst Hahne.
Struck from cupro nickel or aluminium bronze, each uncirculated coin is struck with greater pressure than standard coins to improve the sharpness and detail of the designs.
The uncirculated set features a 50 cent piece with a hyper-metallic coloured print accentuating the Australian Coat of Arms.
The 2012 coins are housed in an illustrated folder and sleeve.
