Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Australian Decimal Currency.

2016 6 Coin Uncirculated Year Set 50th Anniversary of Australian Decimal Currency

From the days when Australia was a fledgling nation with a rudimentary monetary system to the sophisticated coins which commemorate national milestones; coins have always played a special role in telling our national history. Each early Australian era can be represented through the change in coins. This includes the early European settlers who improvised with foreign currency, the colonial soldiers and their rum trade, the holey dollars and dumps which were struck by a convicted forger and the ingots, tokens and sovereigns made during the gold rush. Pounds, shillings and pence were established as Australian money until the historic changeover to decimal currency on 14 February 1966.
