Whether you regard it as the last year of the second millennium or the first year of the third millennium, year 2000 is certainly a time of celebration. This Millennium Year holds great significance for us all, and in recognition of what will be truly a once-in-a-lifetime event the Royal Australian Mint produced the year 2000 Six Coin Uncirculated Set.
This set features the 5c, 10c, 20c, $1 and $2 coins with their original circulating designs. Introduced especially for this Millennium Year is a commemorative 50c piece with a superbly styled Australian flag, designed by Vladimir Gottwald. Stuart Devlin, goldsmith to Her MajestyQueen Elizabeth II, created the 5c, 10c, 20c and $1 coin designs, whilst Horst Hahne designed the $2 coin. Ian Rank-Broadley's effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse.
The glossy presentation folder gives interesting facts about the Millennium and each coins specification. The brilliant uncirculated coins in this collection have been specially selected and handled with care to avoid damage and are legal tender in the Australia.
