One of the most important events in Australia's recent history, the changeover to decimal currency in 1966 was a massive undertaking! Every coin and every banknote had to change! Businesses countrywide had to change their ways too! And for coin collectors... its an incredible moment in time. Thus, in 2016, the Australian government agreed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the changeover by releasing some special coins into circulation...

The four coins available here all feature a special obverse design combining the usual Queen's portrait, together with a small representation of one of the coins that it replaced back in 1966.

All taken from Mint bags, every coin is in Uncirculated condition, just as they were when taken from the hoppers at the Mint itself in 2016!
