To celebrate the 200 anniversary of the Australian Holey Dollar and Dump, The Perth Mint has released a commemorative two-coin set, struck from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality. The reverse of each Australian legal tender coin replicates the original Holey Dollar and Dump. The Perth Mint will release no more than 4,000 of these Holey Dollar & Dump Sets. Each set is housed in presentation packaging and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
