In the mid 1820s, British currency was established as the sole form of legal tender in the Australian colonies. It wasn’t until 1910 that Australia’s first national currency was launched. The halfpenny and the penny made their debut a year later, and would remain in circulation until decimalisation in 1966.
This pre decimal type set album provides space for 10 coins providing a fine overview of Australia’s halfpenny and penny. The set comprises the variety of designs issued under George V (1911-36), George VI (1938-52) and Elizabeth II (1953-64).
