1953 - 1984 Cents to Pence Souvenir Pack - Copper Coin Changeover 14th February 1966

This delightful four-coin set re-kindles fond memories of Australia's copper coins. Four Copper Coins.

The 'small change' included in each From Pence To Cents Copper Coin Pack comprises: a penny and half penny, struck by The Perth Mint for issue in 1953-1964 (Extremely Fine condition). Both coins depict George Kruger Gray's iconic red kangaroo reverse design and Mary Gillick's pretty effigy of young Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. 1966-1984 (Uncirculated condition) 2c and 1c coins (withdrawn from circulation in 1991) bearing Stuart Devlin's frilled-necked dragon lizard and feather-tailed glider reverse designs.

Arnold Machin's effigy of Her Majesty The Queen appears on the obverses. Perth Mint Penny and Half Penny A dot after the 'Y' at the end of HALF PENNY and PENNY on the reverse of these coins indicates they were made at The Perth Mint. 'Dollar Bill' Presentation Pack All four classic copper coins are housed in a pack portraying 'Dollar Bill', the memorable cartoon character who starred in an extensive public education campaign prior to decimalisation.

Only 10,000 of these packs have been made to celebrate to 40th anniversary of decimalisation.
