The coins were housed in different shapes and sizes of folders from 1986 to 1992 (see picture 3). In 1992, the scallop-shaped $5 coin was first introduced. From 1992 onward, there were 7 coins in total from 1c to $5. There was no issue in 1993. From 1994 onward, the coins were housed in a red card holder that resemble the traditional HongBao (Red Packets). Hence, this became known as the HongBao Pack series (see picture 2). From 2004 onward, the 1-cent coin was retired out of circulation. The uncirculated coin set was back to 6 coins from 5c to $5. This series ended in 2013 when the 3rd series of coins was introduced.
