50th Anniversary of Decimal Currency

PRE-ORDER Dispatch from 1st August 2016- 2016 Gold Proof year Set

On 14 February 1966, the changeover to decimal currency transformed the nation, as Australia joined a worldwide currency trend. The uniquely Australian images of the decimal coins are still cherished on their 50th anniversary.

The coins’ images of Australian wildlife were designed by Stuart Devlin. Despite many changes in minting technology and social trends, these have been enduring and iconic symbols of Australian culture. They were joined in 1984 by Devlin’s design of five kangaroos for the one dollar coin, and in 1988 by Horst Hahne’s image of an Aboriginal elder for the two dollar coin. Three of the coins featured in the set, the round 50c, 1c and 2c, no longer circulate.
