AUSTRALIA 2012 Six Coin Proof Year Set - Special Editions Set Containing the Selectively Gold Plated 50c Coin
The Royal Australian Mint’s Year Sets are highly prized coin sets and are sought after by collectors all over the world. Each year these sets provide an invitation to look more closely at the coins we see every day, rediscover the detail of their design and appreciate their beauty and craftsmanship. Individually, each set appropriately commemorates the year of its release and consecutively, they provide the foundation of a comprehensive collection of Australian coins.
The 2012 Special Edition Proof Year Set is no exception and with the inclusion of a very distinctive selectively gold 50 cent coin makes it anything but traditional. After all, the craftspeople of the Royal Australian Mint are innovators and not imitators.
The showpiece of this collection is undoubtedly the selectively gold plated 50 cent piece, featuring the Australian Coat of Arms as sculpted by Stuart Devlin. This magnificent piece and accompanying coins earmark this set as unique to 2012 and is a true treasure. All six coins have been finished to a world-standard proof quality, using an intricate process of individual pressing and hand polishing under pristine conditions.
