The "Voice of Cricket": The Richie Benaud 50c Coin

Some names are synonymous with their sport. And Richie Benaud was one such name.

2,000 Test runs.  2,000 Test wickets.  Captain of Australia.

But it was his incredible 42 year broadcasting career on the BBC, which made Benaud the Voice of Cricket for so many generations of cricket lovers.

Now, as the perfect tribute to Benaud, you can own the Royal Australian Mint's official coin to celebrate his life.

The limited edition Brilliant Uncirculated 50c coin makes Benaud the second cricketing great ever celebrated by the Royal Australian Mint. Their 1996 Sir Donald Bradman Coin was met with huge collector interest and it seems certain that both British and Australian cricket lovers will be just as keen to own the new Richie Benaud official coin.
