Pre-Decimal Commonwealth Coins

///Pre-Decimal Commonwealth Coins

AUSTRALIA’S COMMONWEALTH COINAGE WAS CONCEIVED, IMPLEMENTED, USED AND SUPERSEDED IN A PERIOD LASTING MORE THAN HALF OF OUR NATION’S HISTORY SINCE FEDERATION.

THE INTRODUCTION OF A UNIFORM COMMONWEALTH COINAGE IN 1910 WAS ONE OF THE MOST PRACTICAL AND SYMBOLIC EVENTS FOLLOWING FEDERATION IN 1901.

WHEN COMBINED WITH THEIR INHERENT RARITY, THE ENDURING APPEAL OF COLLECTING COMMONWEALTH COINS AMONG SUCCESSIVE GENERATIONS HAS LED TO RISING PRICES FOR MANY DESIRABLE COINS, SO MUCH SO THAT INVESTMENT REMAINS A KEY MOTIVE FOR MANY COLLECTORS TODAY.
