|The specimen coin has a 'reverse frosting' finish where the field is frosted to contrast with the highly polished raised design. It was distributed encapsulated and mounted on a colourful see-both-sides cardboard card protected by a plastic sleeve.|
The specimen version was included in 1,000 1oz Silver Millennium 4-Coin Sets released jointly by the Perth and Canberra mints.
