2003: Golden Jubilee of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II - 50c PNC
2003: Golden Jubilee (50th Anniversary) of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II 50c PNC.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary the Royal Australian Mint produced an gold coloured 50c coin. The Golden Jubilee 50c reverse was designed by artist Peter Soobik and was sculpted by Wojciech Pietranik. The obverse is the standard Ian Rank- Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
The coin is the standard plain edged 12 sided 50c seen in circulation but has been issued as NCLT (non circulating legal tender). It weighs 15.55g and is 31.51mm in diameter. It is however made from aluminium bronze instead of the usual cupro nickel, a first for the 50c piece.
The PNC features a $2.45 and 50c stamp postmarked 2 June 2003 at Elizabeth, South Australia (a suburb north of Adelaide). It has a card insert which features the coin.
The coin is exclusive to this stamp and coin cover (ie not issued any other way). Only 65,003 produced.
