Description:

Ten Dollar Specimen Pair Trio

1994 - 1996 Olympic Heritage Series Set


The complete set of 6 coins in the Olympic Heritage series.

The Olympic Heritage series of coins was released by the RAM to mark a century of Australia's participation in the Olympic Games.

It includes six reverse frosted specimen silver Ten Dollar coins, with one pair released each year for the three year period between 1994 and 1996.

The coins feature some of Australia's most loved and enduring sporting heroes: Murray Rose; Edwin Flack; Dawn Fraser; Sarah Durack; Shirley Strickland and Betty Cuthbert.

These were the first Australian silver coins produced in the reverse frosted format, and they look fantastic. The certificates of authenticity include a range of biographical information on each of the sports-people featured.

As is always the case with a series of coins issued over a number of years, there is one or two items that are the key to the series - the 1996 pair of coins is easily the hardest to get in this set, as the mintage was much lower than for the two years previous.

The ratio of complete sets to partial sets is probably 5 to 1.
