Prior to this, Australian coins and notes were a collection of currencies from around

the world, however by this point were primarily British.

The first coins produced specifically for The Commonwealth of Australia,

(threepence, sixpence, shilling, florin), were minted in 1910 in London, although

the Australian halfpenny and penny were not minted until 1911.   Further detail

The Australian pre-decimal era refers to

the period between 1901 and 1965,

however for the purposes of Australian

currency effectively relate to coins minted

between 1910 and 1964.

(ie. between federation and decimilisation).

The six British colonies in Australia were

declared an independant nation in 1901,

(federation), 'The Commonwealth of Australia',

although remained part of the British Empire,

as a Constitutional Monarchy.

predecimal coins

The Australian pre-decimal period spanned

the reign of 5 monarchs:

King Edward VII in 1910.

King George V from 1911 to 1936.

 King Edward VIII in 1936, (no coins minted).

King George VI from 1937 to 1952.

Queen Elizabeth II from 1953 to 1964.

The last pre-decimal coins were manufactured

for 1964, prior to Australia's conversion to

decimal currency in 1966: 'Decimilisation'.

Early Australian coins and banknotes were often

very low mintage, due to the low demand for

circulating currency, Australia having a relatively

small population, compared to other nations.
