It is not surprising that small retail shops such as milk bars, newsagencies and bakeries are often the source of the most significant predecimal coin hoards. As these businesses dealt mainly with small transactions, and no such thing as credit cards or eftpos, shop owners during the predecimal era always had to have plenty of coinage on hand. Regularly, coins were stashed away in large number, either circulated coins or - as in the Ipswich Milk Bar Hoard - in genuine original rolls!

The lowest mintage Australian florin from 1940 until the end of the series in 1963, the 1959 Florin BU is still surprisingly affordable in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
