Values, images, and specifications for Australian

coins from 1910 to 1964.


The six British colonies in

Australia were declared an

independent nation in 1901,

(federation), however 'The

Commonwealth of Australia',

remained part of the British

Empire as a Constitutional

Monarchy.


The Australian pre-decimal coin era refers to the period

between federation and decimilisation, effectively 1910 to 1964.


Prior, Australian coinage was a collection of currencies

from around the world, however leading up to federation

was primarily British.
