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.

Over the last half-century, the Mint has also celebrated the significance of coins with many commemorative and collectible products. The pinnacle of these are proof coins, which are intricately designed, struck and inspected in precious metals to create splendid pieces for discerning collectors.

The Royal Australian Mint will release no more than 1,966 of the 2016 50th Anniversary Of Decimal Currency Fine Silver Year Set.
