Description:

1966 Uncirculated Mint Coin Set VIP Presentation Wallet


A truly scarce slice of decimal memorabilia.

The introduction of decimal currency to Australia in 1966 was of course a major event in our national history. A major component in the strategy to ensure that the new coins were accepted without hesitation from the outset was a strategy of informing opinion leaders and other influential parties far and wide of the new designs.

To this end, the Royal Australian Mint produced 520 special "VIP" wallets - these are a dusty blue colour, the clear wallets and cards inside them are slightly different to those issued for collectors.

If strongly rising values are any indication, collectors these days are increasingly appreciating the history and "cool" factor that 1966-related decimal memorabilia has.

Compare the number of these VIP wallets that have turned up at auction over the past few years with the equivalent number of 1966 twenty cent coins with the wavy baseline in UNC condition, and you get a clear understanding of why many collectors see these VIP sets as being excellent value for money.
