Magnificent mint condition proof set that has been well looked after.
This set does include the original box but the outer wallet and inner information pages are pristine.
This proof set is struck using highly polished dies that use blanks with a smooth, bright surface. The result is a true masterpiece of flawless beauty with the flat surface of the coin having a mirrored like finish and the raised design being delicately frosted. Once minting is complete all dies are destroyed.
The coins truly celebrate Australia’s natural heritage and pay tribute to our oldest natural inhabitants. The feather tail glider, the frill necked lizard, the spiny ant eater, the lyre bird, the platypus, the kangaroo and the emu are joined by Australia’s earliest human inhabitant the Aborigine.
A nice addition to any collection and a well priced gift for a friend overseas to showcase our country.
