Mint makes decimal currency history with the flip of a coin


The 14th of February marks the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the decimal currency - the move from pounds, shilling and pence to dollars and cents.

The Assistant Minister to the Treasurer the Hon Alex Hawke MP has announced that history will be made this year by the Royal Australian Mint (the Mint) with a special release of the entire suite of Australia’s circulating coins to feature commemorative designs recognising the 50th anniversary of decimal currency.
