2000 1oz Proclamation Coins Silver Dollar
In a repeat of the distribution method used in previous years, collectors on the RAM mailing list were given a 4 week period in February/March in which to order the coin. Once the order period had closed and numbers were known, the production run was completed, striking only sufficient coins to fill orders plus a small proportion for distribution by selected numismatic dealers.
Notes:The reverse design of this coin incorporates a 1oz Cartwheel penny, to commemorate Governor King's proclamation in 1800 which attempted to standardise the value of the wide variety of coins circulating in the New South Wales colony at the time. The coin is housed, encapsulated, in a brown velvet, hinged lid presentation case protected by a colourful cardboard box and accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
