Story

Decimalised currency

Fifty years ago, on the 14 February 1966, Australia introduced decimal notes and coins to its currency, marking the end of its British currency system based on pounds, shillings, and pence. The decision to decimalise the currency provided the opportunity to design a completely new series of coins featuring Australian motifs.

Collector's pack

The first decimal coins released in 1966 consisted of six denominations. A round silver 50 cent piece, three copper-nickel coins, the 20, 10, and 5 cent; and two bronze coins, a 1 and 2 cent piece. Featuring a mix of predecimal and decimal coins, this collection pack is sure to please historians and collectors alike.
