2016 PNC - Queen Elizabeth's II 90th Birthday - Raphael Maklouf portrait (1985) - Frosted Uncirculated
Charting the Queen’s life and reign through portraiture, this PNC includes and Australian legal tender 20 cent coin.
Struck to Frosted Uncirculated quality, this set carries the Raphael Maklouf portrait (1985).
The presence of 2016-dated coins bearing the original decimal Maklouf portrait is a stroke of genius on the part of the RAM, as this effigy has not been used on this denomination since 1985, this is also the very first time that a Platypus 20c has been struck to the Mint’s exquisite Frosted Uncirculated quality!
The Frosted Uncirculated strike gives these beloved Stuart Devlin reverse motifs a very different ‘look’, and for anyone determined to maintain a complete collection, this set of utterly unique types is a compulsory acquisition.
