Ight-sided profile portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Her portrait includes her shoulders. She wears her crown and jewels. Inscriptions: "ELIZABETH II", "AUSTRALIA" along with the weight, purity, and face value. This is one of the early 1 Kilo coin issues by The Perth Mint.It is very rare that this coin comes up for sale from 1996 and even more rare that the coin and plastic protective capsule is in MINT condition! It is an incredibly heavy coin and absolutely in mint condition, having never been removed from its protective plastic capsule nor displayed. Note however the faux leather case that houses the coin has started to disintegrate on the outside (see pictures). The coin has sat undistributed in my closet for over 25 years and probably why the outside of the case has "bonded" to the protective cardboard sleeve and why it has started to disintegrate.
This of course has no effect on the coin or the plastic protective capsule inside! Please see all photos as they are considered part of the description of this listing (note: first three photos are professional stock photos of the 1996 Australia Kilo coin and the rest of the actual coin and it case). Minor surface scratches on the protective plastic capsule.
