1997 PNC - Sir Donald Bradman - Bi-Metal $5 Coin
1997 PNC - Sir Donald Bradman, including a Bi-Metal 5 Dollar Coin (Aluminium-Bronze centre in Stainless Steel ring).
"The Don is acclaimed as being the greatest achiever in any competitive sport during his cricket career spanning over 25 years in the 1920's-1940's. Known to be the greatest batsman of all time Donald George Bradman was born August 27th 1908 and passed away peacefully on February 25th 2001 aged 92 years."
Interestingly, the majority of these releases contain a spelling mistake. In the second paragraph on the back, "Australia Day" is spelt as "Austraila Day".
When initially discovered by Australia Post, they reissued a version with the correct spelling, though to date, I have yet to actually see one of these, with all I have encountered having the spelling mistake.
This means that if you come across one of these releases with the correct spelling, it could be worth quite a bit more.
All available PNC's remain in excellent condition with only minor wear, though please note, they do not include a plastic PNC cover.

Products were exactly what I ordered, packaging was awesome and there was a little ‘Thank You’ in the package. Prices were pretty good too
