1966 – Australia’s first 10c date!

Several mints were needed to produce the huge number of coins required to enable the smooth transition from predecimal to decimal currency in Australia in February 1966. To identify which coin had been struck by which mint, a series of subtle mintmarks were employed – as illustrated by the 1966 10c issues.

Unique mintmarks!

As well as mints in Australia, the Royal Mint in London helped the Royal Australian Mint with the production of the nation’s new decimal coins – including the 10c denomination. The 10c coins struck at the Royal Mint are distinguished from the Royal Australian Mint 10c by virtue of a very subtle mintmark. The Royal Mint’s 1966 10c depicts the Lyre Bird’s central feather with five spikes, whilst the Royal Australian Mint’s 1966 10c has four spikes!

Strictly Uncirculated, mint-state quality!

A compelling, tangible keepsake of decimalisation – the most important milestone in Australian currency history – we have the 1966 10c Mintmark Pair in mint-state Uncirculated condition. Click add to cart now!
