“In come the dollars, in come the cents…” augured the jingle marking Australia’s introduction of decimal currency on 14 February 1966.

The impact of the new currency can hardly be overstated. Not only did it require that individuals reconceptualise the method through which they approached commercial transactions (the three-unit system replaced by two units), but it also meant designing producing new price signage, and a huge public education campaign to ensure a smooth transition. Renowned designer Gordon Andrews (1914-2001) created the new banknotes, and noted gold-and silversmith Stuart Devlin (1931-) fashioned the coins.

Both created wonderfully modern designs focused squarely on natural and cultural aspects of Australia. The stamp design show the £1 note from the pre-decimal system, the $1 note introduced 1966 and the $1 coin that replaced the note in 1984. The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2016 year-date and the monetary denomination are featured on the coins’ obverse.

Affixed to each envelope is an official Australia Post $1.00 stamp featuring the new $1 banknote. The stamp is postmarked for the first day of issue 9th February 2016 – Canberra ACT 2600 along with the Australia Post’s Seal of Authenticity.
