2003 Golden Jubilee PNC

2003 celebrated the Queen's Golden Jubilee. 50 years since the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II after her father King George VI's passing.

To celebrate this 50th Anniversary the Royal Australian Mint produced an NCLT 50c coin. The Golden Jubilee 50c reverse was designed by artist Peter Soobik and was sculpted by Wojciech Pietranik. The obverse is the standard Ian Rank- Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.

The coin is the standard plain edged 12 sided 50c seen in circulation but has been issued as NCLT -non circulating legal tender. It weighs 15.55g and is 31.51mm in diameter. It is however made from aluminium bronze instead of the usual cupro nickel, a first for the 50c piece.

The PNC features a $2.45 and 50c stamp postmarked 2 June 2003 at Elizabeth South Australia , a suburb north of Adelaide. It has a card insert which features the coin. The PNC was issued for $11.95 by Australia Post with a mintage of 65,003 .
