Defined by a splendid, Proof-quality strike, carried out to the exacting standards of the Royal Australian Mint, the much-anticipated 2018 Proof Set is here! Created with individually polished dies, this sparkling set comprises Australia's coinage in a quality you'll never see anywhere else. Thanks to the addition of a unique, one-year-only $1 type honouring the centenary of the Armistice, this already critical release is sure to inspire demand from a broad cross-section of the community.

Comprises Six Australian Legal Tender Coins

Ranging from the 5c to the $2, all six decimal coin denominations are represented in this comprehensive set. Most of the designs may be familiar, but with each coin struck to breathtaking Proof quality, it becomes possible to appreciate the beauty of Australia's coinage in a whole new way. With enormous contrast between their mirrored surfaces and gently frosted designs, all six coins unite supreme quality with unparalleled national significance. Upon the obverse of each coin, the 2018 date joins the much-admired Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.

Contains a Unique $1 Type

In commemoration of the 100 years that have passed since the signing of the Armistice in 1918, the Royal Australian Mint has included a unique, one-year-only $1 type! Not released for circulation and so never to be found in change, this unique issue bears a poignant reverse design. Its cornerstone, the poppy, is a richly symbolic choice; this traditional flower of remembrance is tightly woven into the fabric of Australia's WWI experience. The sense of symbolism is echoed further in the arrangement of stylised military motifs beneath the flowers.

Commemorates the End of WWI, 100 Years On

The years of 1914-1918 saw some of the darkest days in Australia's history. From the ill-fated Gallipoli Campaign to the scores lost on the Western Front and the intensity of the battles fought in the Middle East, the Great War would leave an indelible stamp on society. The signing of the Armistice by France, Britain and Germany on November 11, 1918 meant that the guns would finally fall silent, allowing the country and its people to begin the slow process of rebuilding.

From the Royal Australian Mint

Since the dawn of decimal currency in Australia, the RAM has been the country's main supplier of circulating coinage. Released each year, its Proof Sets are a critical part of Australia's history: essential numismatic artefacts of the year of their issue, to be treasured for generations to come. Hugely popular with collectors, and part of a century-old numismatic tradition, the 2018 Proof Set is a prestigious, yet still affordable, acquisition for any Australian collector.

Sensational Presentation

Not simply limited to the quality of the Proofs contained within, the sense of attention to detail is echoed in this set's superb, official RAM packaging. Comprising a luxurious presentation case set within a decorative outer sleeve, this stylish presentation is also eye-catching, with the poppy motif incorporated into the sleeve's vivid, ruby-hued design.

Already a sought-after, noteworthy numismatic artefact, the particularly eye-catching presentation - and poignant one-year-only $1 type - elevates the 2018 Proof Set to a whole new realm. For those to whom quality and craftsmanship are paramount, this set is a must-have.
