Australian Pre-decimal Coins.
The first Australian Commonwealth coins arrived in a shipment on the 1st March 1910 aboard the R.M.S, Otranto. These shillings were minted by the Royal Mint in London. The other silver denominations, florins, sixpences and threepences, arrived later that year. These bore the bust of Edward V11 crowned and robed facing right with the Arms of the Commonwealth of Australia on the reverse
It wasn’t until 1911 that our halfpenny and penny and as Edward V11 had died in 1910 the new copper currency bore the bust of George V crowned and robed facing to the left.

These are coins we have in stock unless they’ve been sold! They’re not linked to the shopping cart but we hope you’ll browse these and just jot down the year and grade and email a wants list to us. We’ll let you know if they’re available and perhaps suggest an alternative if they’re not and give you a total.
