Description

The Royal Australian Mint’s 50th anniversary of decimal currency coin products were well received by everyone with all products selling out in record time.

Those Collectors who requested a premium precious metal product to add to their collection will be happy with the Royal Australian Mint releasing a silver proof 50 cent coin bearing the 1966 round design with selective gold plating and a mintage of just 7,500.

Currency changeover ranks high as a milestone in the history of a nation. Australia’s changeover to decimal currency in 1966 is no exception, with memories cherished by those lucky enough to have experienced the historic event.

The Royal Australian Mint’s commemorative decimal currency products issued in early 2016 were instant hits with collectors and the public. Such was the demand that collectors expressed a wish for an exclusive, low mintage, precious metal 50th anniversary coin.

This 99.9% silver proof 50 cent coin will satisfy collector demands. The round shape is that of the original 50 cent coin before the dodecagonal shape was introduced in 1969. The Australian Coat of Arms design is stunningly selectively gold plated, and mintage is a low 7500.

This will be especially popular with collectors who have bought previous currency changeover products.
