You may have a "Proof" coin or some other coin that has been
specially treated during minting. Proof coins are minted on
specially prepared and highly polished dies so that you get the
"very shiny" effect. One other effect common on Australian Proof

more striking visual effect. If the coin is still in its original
condition and packaging, it will be worth about $10 AUD.
