Details

This commemorative issue celebrates the 100 anniversary of the introduction of Commonwealth silver coins.  The seeds of this seminal event in the history of Australian coinage were sown in 1901 when, under the new Constitution, control of Australia’s currency was vested in the Commonwealth.  Subsequently, the Coinage Act of 1909 saw the replacement of British gold, silver and bronze coins with the Commonwealth’s own coinage, beginning with the 1910-dated Australian florin, shilling, sixpence and threepence depicting King Edward VII
