AUSTRALIA 1982 PROOF SET XVII Commonwealth Games in Brisbane commemorative

Australia has been producing proof year sets ever since decimal currency was introduced in 1966, the 1982 proof year set was the second most popular ever produced (second only behind the 1988 Bicentennial set.) Proof coins are the same as those we see in our change, but are struck with specially prepared machinery on specially prepared blanks - the designs always stand out magnificently. Coin collecting was in a boom period in 1982, not only that but public interest in the Brisbane Commonwealth Games was extremely high also. The 1982 Commonwealth Games 50 cent coin has to be one of the most hoarded decimal coins ever produced!, The coins in this set are in perfect condition, as is the packaging. It comes with the original protective foam outers and certificate.
