2002 $50 XVII Commonwealth Games Manchester Tri-Metal Proof Coin
Product Code: 02G2393
Australia's First True Three Metal Coin
Only 5000 of this three metal numismatic first will be minted. The coin has a fine gold centre, a pure silver inner ring and a copper outer ring, simulating the gold, silver and bronze medals that will be awarded to competition winners.
This is an immensely beautiful coin with its intricate obverse and reverse designs. The customary Ian Rank-Broadley image of Her Majesty is displayed on the fine gold centre of the obverse, while on the inner pure silver ring are the words: ‘Elizabeth II Australia 2002 Fifty Dollars’. The outer ring depicts a collage of wattle blossom, interwoven with Eucalyptus leaves.
On the reverse, a group of victorious athletes stand above a laurel wreath with arms raised in the form of a crown. The words: ‘The XVII Commonwealth Games Manchester 2002’ appear on the inner ring, while a succession of running figures circle the outer ring.
The encapsulated coin is housed in a plush velvet presentation case with an embossed outer box and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the Controller of the Mint.
With only 5000 coins to be released world-wide, we are expecting a high demand for
this coin, so don’t delay on this rarity.
This Tri-metalic Coin is made up as follows - 15.32g Copper, 13.39g Silver, 7.80g Gold.
