Museum Victoria Comment
Hi Robyn, according to 'Australian Historical Medals 1788 - 1988', p656, by Leslie Carlisle, only 500 of these were minted. As we've indicated below Museum Victoria can't provide valuations but you can see our Question of the Week on how to obtain a coin valuation: http://museumvictoria.com.au/discoverycentre/discovery-centre-news/2009-archive/coin-valuations/
