Bimetallic coins are a fairly recent innovation. The combination of a fine (.999) silver centre and gold-plated fine silver outer ring makes this quite an unusual coin.
This coin itself is part of an Australian trilogy, the past, present and future.

A very clean looking portrait of the Queen in the silver inner circle, with the legend occupying the gold plated outer silver disc, reading:

According to the information card:
As Australia enters the twenty-first century, it can reflect on its rich cultural heritage, a heritage that stretches back to the last Ice Age and to the ancestors of its original inhabitants, the Australian Aborigines. It is the very essence of their ancient lore and the abundant topographical wealth of this vast island nation's natural and contrasting treasures that have prompted the Royal Australian Mint to issue special coins in celebration of the advent of the third millennium, coins that represent The Past, The Present, and The Future. This coin represents The Present and is a testament of Australia today - a nation preserving its ancient values as well as embracing a multicultural society.
