Sorry! This Australia 1996 Baby Uncirculated Mint Coin Set Henry Parkes (Type 1 Packaging) has sold.

Australia 1996 Baby Uncirculated Mint Coin Set Henry Parkes (Type 1 Packaging) .

This set has the Type I of outer sleeve for 1996 - it doesn't have the date on it.


Australia has been producing mint year sets packaged with a "baby" theme since 1993. The coins in mint sets are just the same as those we see in circulation, but are in perfect condition! Baby mint sets are produced in far lower numbers than standard mint sets, so they are far harder to get.

Couple this with the fact that those parents & grandparents that didn't get them when they first came out are willing to pay over the odds to get them, and these sets are great to put away.

The 1996 $1 coin features the (somewhat unattractive) bust of Sir Henry Parkes - a key figure leading up to Australia's federation in 1901.

The mint sets between 1985 and 1996 are an interesting series - many of them include coins that weren't ever issued for circulation! You'll never find a 10¢ piece dated 1996 in your change, because they were only ever put out in the mint sets. This means the mint sets will be much tougher to get in years to come - a lot of them will be broken by collectors just wanting the coins inside them!

The mintage of this set was just 25,727 sets - this set has the "Type I"  outer sleeve according to McDonald, it doesn't have a barcode on the back cover and doesn't have the date on the front.

There must've been some confusion at the RAM about which set was which back in 1996, because after a few months the outer sleeves were revised to include the date on the front, and a barcode on the back.
