The first Australian post-federation

coinage was minted in 1910.

Pre-decimal currency was used from

1910 to 1964, based on the United

Kingdom's monetary system, with

the same denominations and

relative values.

1 penny = 1/12 of a shilling

= 1/240 of a pound

Australia adopted the decimal system in

1966, replacing the penny with the cent, and

the pound with the dollar.

The ratio changed from 1:240 to 1:100.

Circulation issue denominations introduced

in 1966 were: one cent, two cent, five cent,

ten cent, twenty cent, and fifty cent, with one

dollar coins introduced in 1984, and two dollar

coins in 1988.

Circulation issue one cent coins were last minted in 1990,

and two cent coins in 1989, prior to their gradual wihdrawal

from circulation, commencing in 1992.

Prior to 1910, Australia's

official currency was United

Kingdom coinage, although

in earlier years several

currencies circulated within

Australia, which at the time

was a collection of

British colonies.

The Australian threepence,

sixpence, shilling, and florin

were introduced in 1910, the

halfpenny and penny in 1911,

and the crown in 1937,

replacing their United

Kingdom predecessors.
