The centerpiece of the collection is a proof-like, crown-sized 1oz, .999 silver medallion with Sydney's Opera House and Harbour Bridge on one side and the hands of time ticking towards the dawn of a new millennium on the other.|

1999 Older Persons $1,
2000 Olympics $1 (Canberra) or (Sydney),
2000 Millennium 50c,
2000 Royal Visit 50c,
