We’re really picking up now with the sheer numbers of dollar issues minted by the RAM. Key military themes emerge over these years and the following few with the VC dollar a hugely popular coin, you’d be lucky to pick up one of these for under $200 with both packaging types having cv’s of $285-$325.
2000 was a very busy year with both the Olympics and Millennium celebrations. The value of the 2000 mint and proof year sets is high because of the high volume of visitors in the country who took their purchases back to their home countries.
A couple of VIP issues for these years. These coins are the same so only those with packyboxitis should look into this further. The HMAS Sydney II launch folder is just a regular S mintmarked folder but with special VIP launch printing on the folder. The Federation Special VIP release Proof Set for 2000 is also just an added signed (by the then mint controller Graeme Moffatt) certificate within the packaging.
