Coin and banknote combination

These two notable issues of pre-decimal Australian currency paint an exciting picture of Australia during the post-war boom. It is understood that Australia's Baptism of fire triggered a new sense of national identity and unity as well as inspired a sense of optimism for the nation's future.

The 1927 Canberra Florin was Australia's first-ever commemorative. Issued for the opening of Parliament House on May 9, 1927, it features a superb reverse motif of the building's façade in its full glory.

The King George V Riddle/Heathershaw £1 banknote was also issued in the year Parliament was opened. Issued in small numbers, this note is genuine, scarce artifact of a very different Australia.
