The obverse shows the Victorian Coat of Arms surmounted by the State flag. The reverse shows the three most original emblems of the state: Yellow Helmeted Honeyeater, Pink Heath and Leadbeater’s Possum. Because the buyer of the gold pieces wanted their purchase kept secret, even the NAV Council were not informed of their existence for six years. With previous issues the NAV had offered gold pieces (Price on Application) but none had ever been requested.
