Australian 1977 Proof Six Coin Year Set – Silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II
The Silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II marked the 25th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the thrones of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms. To commemorate this special occasion, the Royal Australian Mint issued a special 50c coin. The design on the reverse of the 50c coin features at the centre the wattle blossom symbol of Australia, surrounded by “silver jubilee – 50 cents” and twenty five crowns.
The designs on the reverse of the rest of the coins feature unique inhabitants of Australia.
The obverse of the coins in the proof set contains the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Mr Arnold Machin O.B.E., R.A.
The proof coins are struck from specially prepared blanks using highly polished and frosted dies.
To reduce the possibility of tarnishing, the coins are packed in a specially designed case which is sealed by ultrasonic welding.
The set has an outer foam box.
Collection can be arranged at a mutually agreed location
