Description:

The ultimate tribute to the 50th anniversary of Australia's conversion to decimal currency in 1966, highlighted by sensational presentation, the Australian Currency Changeover Premium Collection comprises the very LAST coins of the predecimal era and the very FIRST coins of the decimal period.

Superbly presented, eminently historic and utterly comprehensive, this outstanding new release is highlighted by the 1963 Sixpence, Shilling and Florin, along with the 1964 Halfpenny, Penny and Threepence. Bearing the original portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Mary Gillick, and struck at the Melbourne and Perth Mints, the final dates of the predecimal period are a crucial element of every Australian collection.


The most authentic commemoration of this major milestone in Australia's currency history, the 'last issue' predecimal dates are presented with the coins brought in to replace them - the first coins of the decimal era. Naturally among the most valued coins of the decimal series, the 1966 issue comprised the 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c, 20c and famous Silver Round 50c - Australia's only issued decimal coin struck from precious metal. In pristine condition, the six 1966 coins are offered in strictly Uncirculated quality.

The perfect environment for such a valuable, authentic keepsake of the change to decimal currency, the twelve coins are individually encapsulated and housed within a high-quality hardback portfolio. Sturdy, handsome and richly informative, the impressive portfolio will enhance every collector's enjoyment of this 12-coin set.
