1991 SILVER JUBILEE SET
This exquisite collection of Eight 1991 proof sterling silver coins and plaque commemorates 25 years of decimal currency in Australia. It is the first complete set of Australian circulating coins in sterling silver and the first sterling silver releases of Australian one, two, five, ten and twenty cent coins. An interesting feature of the ram on the 50 cent coin is that is was last seen on Australia's pre-decimal shilling.
The plaque has been manufactured in sterling silver to the same exacting standards as the proof coins in the set. Each plaque is consecutively numbered using a method unique to the Royal Austrlalian Mint.
1991 is the last year of one and two cent coin production in Australia and the examples in this collection are the last mintings with a 1991 date.
The sterling silver proof coins in this collection make up the premier collector coin release in the Royal Australians Mint's 1991 calendar.
The coins are beautifully presented in the Royal Australian Mint original black box, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and outer box.
Mintage has also been limited to only 24,000 sets to assure the collection's value.
