To celebrate the International Year of Astronomy in 2009, the Royal Australian Mint has released its outstanding two-coin uncirculated sets.
The event, backed by the International Astronomical Union and UNESCO, has a theme of ‘The Universe, Yours to Discover’.
Produced to complement the 2009 6-coin year sets, the twin sets make available the coins that aren’t available through the 6-coin sets.
