2004 Student Design 50c Cu-Ni Coin Pack
In 2003, the Royal Australian Mint held a competition among Primary School Students to create a 50c coin design around the theme of 'Australia'.
Twelve year-old Victorian John Serrano came up with the winning motif, which featured a wombat, lorikeet and koala. Serrano's design was made immortal when struck upon the 2004 Student Design 50c coin, and hit tills and purses across the country. A low-mintage release, just 10.2 million were struck.
The 2004 Student Design 50c coin is a unique, one-year-only legal tender type. Utterly distinctive, it's becoming hard to find in change today ‐ especially in higher grades! Downies is delighted to offer collectors the opportunity to secure this coin in Uncirculated condition. Presented in a sleek, credit card-style pack, it's a must-have for a complete decimal collection.
Now a Structural Engineer, John Serrano's obvious gift for 2D and 3D conceptualisation has stood him in good stead. A design best enjoyed in mint-state Uncirculated, don't miss your chance to secure his unique commemorative!
