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.

When Australia federated in 1901, our coins symbolised our bond with England. For the first nine years of this new nation, English currency was used as Australian money. In 1910, the first coins struck for this young country emulated the English monetary system. Pounds, shillings and pence were established as Australian money until the historic changeover to decimal currency on 14 February 1966.
