A crucial acquisition for serious decimal collectors, the 1967 Uncirculated Set fills the gaping hole in the decimal series created by the lack of a 1967 Mint Set.

With the Australian Government still reeling from the 1966 Silver Round 50c debacle, no 50c denomination was issued for circulation in 1967. Thus, Australia's second annual decimal coinage issue comprised only the copper 1c & 2c, along with the cupro-nickel 5c, 10c & 20c. Not only was there no 50c coin issued for circulation in 1967 ' there was no official Australian Mint Set either! Whether the concept was abandoned due to the confusion surrounding the 50c denomination, or whether it was the difficulty in co-ordinating three mints (RAM, Melbourne & Perth), the Mint Set that collectors anticipated in 1967 never materialised.
