Hi, is there a purpose for the dot bubbles that cover the 50 cent coin ?
I probably shouldnt have a opinion, its stupid.

Yes there is. It is supposed to represent a sheet of metal/strip of metal AFTER the blanks have been punched out. (I think).

I think it is a beautiful piece of imagination.

From the RAM's Site :
"This celebratory set features a modern 50c coin design with its signature dodecagon shape arranged into a ‘honeycomb’ design, symbolising the industrious hive of the Royal Australian Mint."

You can hardly see the coin, for the doted packaging is what annoyed me about it.

Sorry I didnt explain that initially. It was the packaging not the coin itself I refer to.

PS I only wish I could enjoy the coin itself.
