The first coins of Australia’s first national currency system, the King Edward VII 1910 4-Coin Set is important, historic, unique and scarce in any grade.

Although Australia achieved nationhood at Federation in 1901, it would be nearly a decade before the launch of our first national currency. Eventually, in 1910, shipments of silver coins arrived from Britain’s Royal Mint – Australia’s first threepences, sixpences, shillings and florins. As it turned out, the four silver denominations would be the only Australian coins distinguished by the noble features of Edward VII, with the king dying in May of 1910, and the halfpenny and penny not struck until 1911.

Despite the fact that the four silver coins formed the foundation of a new currency system, the Australian population was relatively small at the time, and the mintages were consequently low. A mere 2.5 million 1910 Shillings were produced, for example, with the 1910 Florin mintage being just 1.25 million. With well over a century having passed since issue, and so many lost or destroyed for the sterling silver value, Australia’s first coins are scarce in any grade.

A collection of enormous national significance, the King Edward VII 1910 4-Coin Set is a fundamental element of any Australian coin collection. Grading from Good to Very Good, the 1910 threepence, sixpence, shilling and florin are beautifully presented within an illustrated, richly informative full- colour pack.
