2015 The Ultimate Collection – Australian Football League: Custodians of the Game
In an exciting world’s first, all of the most popular collectable categories have come together to create extremely limited edition pieces for the ultimate challenge in The Ultimate Collection. Each set will include an exclusive fine silver coin, pack of ten officially licensed trading cards and maxicard (themed postcard and stamp) but the challenge is to score the set which has a rare inclusion.
HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE
Since 1897, as the Victorian Football League with eight teams, fans have made the game grow in many ways. From that first year until present day, the grand final is still one of the most anticipated annual events on the Australian sporting calendar.
Throughout the years, the League has increased to 18 teams, including those from other states, and was renamed the Australian Football League (AFL) in 1990.
The players are the stars of the game, with the best and fairest being awarded the annual Brownlow Medal, but the supporters are truly its custodians. They follow its heart-stopping action, and introduce new generations of fanatics.
Please note: As there is limited mintage for each coin set, you will have to try your luck, as you will not discover what coin set you have purchased until you receive it.
