Coin Story

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.

Reverse Design

The coin’s coloured reverse portrays King Edward VII and a collection of Australia’s florin, shilling, sixpence and threepence coins issued in 1910. Incorporating The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design is encircled by the inscription CENTENARY OF AUSTRALIAN COMMONWEALTH SILVER COINAGE 1910 - 2010.

Obverse Design

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

Packaging

The Centenary of Australian Commonwealth Silver Coinage - 1910-2010 King Edward VII silver coin is encapsulated inside a handsome taupe leatherette, clamshell-style presentation case, lined with black velvet and satin, and protected by a full-color outer shipper.
