Australia’s first 1c coins!

Several mints were needed to produce the gargantuan number of coins required to facilitate 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 1c issues.

Unique ‘Whiskers’ Mintmarks!

A fascinating reflection of the most important landmark in Australian currency history, the 1966 1c Trio forms a natural set, and is a must-have in top grade. The 3-coin set comprises the Blunt First Whisker 1c (struck at the Melbourne Mint), the Blunt Second Whisker 1c (Perth Mint) and the All Whiskers Sharp 1c (Royal Australian Mint, Canberra). Importantly, the trio includes the 1966 1c struck by the Perth Mint, which is the lowest mintage issue in the 1966-91 1c Series, and a key to the entire decimal series!
