Description:

Australia 1991 Proof Coin Set

25th Anniversary Of Decimal Currency


The last proof set to include 1¢ & 2¢ coins.

Australia has been producing proof year sets ever since decimal currency was introduced in 1966.

Proof coins are the same as those we see in our change, but are struck with specially prepared machinery on specially prepared blanks - the designs always stand out magnificently.

The consistent power of inflation steadily eroded the purchasing power of Australia's small coins, and so the decision was made to discontinue production of them in 1991.

This set is the last to feature 1¢ & 2¢ coins, and also features the Ram's head commemorative 50 cent piece - one of the scarcest commemorative decimal coins issued for circulation.

The coins in this set are in perfect condition, as is the packaging.
