Colonial Australia’s most controversial bushranger continues to provoke interest and debate on an international scale, as fascination in this set of 2010-dated coins dedicated to Ned Kelly reveals.
Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver
Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
Coloured Reverse Designs
Each coin’s coloured reverse charts Ned Kelly’s days as the leader of an outlaw gang who commanded thousands of pounds in rewards. Including designs depicting Ned’s iconic suite of armour and the Kelly Gang’s last stand at Glenrowan, it also marks his demise on the end of the hangman’s rope at Melbourne Gaol 130 years ago in 1880.
Issued as Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, each coin portrays the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
Just 1,880 of the coins sets will be released.
Timber Presentation Case
Each set is housed in a plush timber presentation case accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and a poster of Ned Kelly who was just 25 when he was put to death.
