Unique Uniqu RAM Silver Proof tribute… TINY WORLDWIDE MINTAGE JUST 5,000! TIN An impressive new precious metal Proof from the Royal Australian Mint, this unique, exclusive, one-year-only Australian legal tender type commemorates the 60th anniversary of the end of the 1950-53 Korean War. Struck to immaculate Proof quality from 11.66g of pure .999 silver, each coin carries a distinctive, richly symbolic design upon the reverse of its 25mm diameter flan. Featuring a dove in flight, set against intricate swirling patterns, along with the word ‘peace’ in Korean, this unique motif celebrates the moment that the armistice was signed by leaders of the Communist north and United Nations officials in 1953. Forming a fine tribute to this key moment in 20th century history, this unique Australian legal tender type is also extremely exclusive. Somewhat surprisingly, the Royal Australian Mint has restricted the worldwide mintage to a mere 5,000 coins – each housed within a plush, official RAM case, united with an individually serial-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
