A landmark release for Australian numismatics, and still a major collector favourite, the 1988 Masterpieces in Silver Set was the very first in the Royal Australian Mint's highly regarded Masterpieces in Silver Series - and one of the best.

Issued to coincide with the celebrations for the 200th anniversary of European Settlement, this sought after silver set comprised four individually brilliant Australian legal tender coins. Headlined by Australia's first $5 coin, the 1988 Masterpieces in Silver also featured the First Fleet 50c, the Aboriginal Elder $2 and the Bicentenary Kangaroos $1 - all struck to the height of Proof quality from sterling silver.
