The ONLY Royal Australian Mint tribute to the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II, the 2016 90th Birthday Frosted Unc 3-Coin Set is official & unique
Charting the Queen’s life and reign through portraiture, this presentation comprises three Australian legal tender coins. Struck to Frosted Uncirculated quality, the Coat of Arms 50c features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy, with the two 20c coins graced with the Arnold Machin and Raphael Maklouf portraits respectively. Set in an individually numbered RAM card, and outstanding value-for-money, the set obviously forms a fantastic way to celebrate this major milestone in Commonwealth history. Moreover, the 2016 90th Birthday FrUnc 3-Coin Set is simply a must-have for collectors.
The presence of 2016-dated coins bearing the original decimal Machin portrait and the Maklouf effigy is a stroke of genius on the part of the RAM – especially as the Maklouf portrait has not graced a standard decimal coin type since 1998! Just as importantly, this is the very first time that a Coat of Arms 50c or a Platypus 20c has been struck to the Mint’s exquisite Frosted Uncirculated quality!
The Frosted Uncirculated strike gives these beloved Stuart Devlin reverse motifs a very different ‘look’, and for anyone determined to maintain a complete collection, this set of utterly unique types is a compulsory acquisition.
