Commemorating fifty years of the Indian-Pacific train

Recommended Posts

Folks, 

To commemorate fifty years of operation of the Indian-Pacific, which runs across Australia from Sydney to Perth and v.v, the Royal Australian Mint is issuing a special commemorative fifty cent coin.

This coin is dodecagonal (ten sided) and on the reverse it shows a front 3/4 view of the train , with green and gold decorations,

This coin is not legal tender, solely commemorative, and sells for $A 15.00.

Regards, 

Bill,

Melbourne.

Katoftw,

Put into Googly  Royal Australian Mint 50 cent coins, should bring the info up.

I was in error, this coin is twelve sided (dodekagon), not ten as I wrote, got the Latin wrong!

Especially since it's Greek!

Thanks, Cat, wondered why it didn't sound quite right for Latin, but took a punt on it!
