2011 Uncirculated 50c Royal Wedding

Celebrating the Royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29th 2011 this Australian 50c is sculpted by Royal Australian Mint designer Vladimir Gottwald using images of the couple as his inspiration. It is issued as uncirculated in a collector card and also in selectively gold plated silver in a 2 coin set with the official Royal engagement coin. It is the standard dodecagonal size as seen in circulation but this coin is specifically for the collector market -a 20c coin featuring the same design will be released into circulation soon after the Wedding takes place. This 50c is cupro-nickel, weighs 18.24g and is 31.51mm in diameter. The unc coin available for issue price of $8.95 has an unlimited mintage and the selectively gold plated silver coin a mintage of 10,000. The obverse features the standard effigy of Prince William's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
