The Commonwealth Games were first held in 1930, and outside of the Second World War, the event has since taken place every four years. In 2018 the Commonwealth Games return to Australia for the fifth time. The XXI Commonwealth Games to be help on the Gold Coast is sure to be yet another enthralling chapter in Australia’s grand sporting history. To celebrate this event the Royal Australian Mint has issued the 2017 $5 Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay 1oz Silver Proof.
Official, important and eye-catching, this Silver Proof is defined by one very significant feature – the unbelievably low mintage. With just 2,018 examples of this 40mm, 1oz 99.9% pure silver Proof struck, a rapid-fire sell-out is assured.
