Uniting the art of the Dreamtime with state-of-the-art currency production, the Indigenous Australia Coin and Note Premium Portfolio is eye-catching, beautifully presented and extremely exclusive.

Underpinned by informative, museum-style presentation, this elegant compilation comprises some of Australia’s most sought-after currency issues. Marvel at the 1988 Bicentennial $10 note, with the ‘26 January 1988’ Overprint – or witness the Bicentennial $2 and $1 designs in luminous sterling silver.

Includes the last Australian $1 note

The Australian $1 note had a fatal flaw: the low denomination status and, compared to a coin, lack of durability. Circulated relentlessly, these paper notes just didn’t stand up to the amount of wear and tear to which they were subjected. By the time the Johnstone/Stone signature combination was introduced in 1982, the writing was well and truly on the wall. Overwhelmed by inflation, the Johnstone/Stone $1 banknote was replaced in 1984 with the ‘Mob of Roos’ $1 coin still used today.

Your portfolio includes a strictly Uncirculated example of the Australian $1 Johnstone/Stone note – bearing the ‘DPS’ Last Prefix! Sought after by collectors today, this beautiful note is a fascinating relic of the evolution of Australian decimal currency.

And the world’s first polymer note – with a unique Overprint!

Thanks in part due to the University of Melbourne and the CSIRO, Australia blazed the polymer trail before any other country. The first plastic issue was the 1988 $10 Johnstone/Fraser Bicentennial banknote, and was released to coincide with 200 years of European Settlement. It was a game-changer.

Uniting a striking design that paid homage to Australia’s first people with a cutting-edge medium, it deftly blended past and present. Now, you can reconnect with that significant moment with a strictly Uncirculated example of this world-renowned banknote – bearing the AA Prefix and the unique bicentennial ‘26 January 1988’ overprint!

In securing this portfolio, you’re adding one of the earliest examples of the world’s first polymer banknote to your collection – an opportunity not to be missed.

Significant coins in stunning silver, 30 years later

The Bicentennial $1 and $2 (1988) and Pride and Passion 50c (2017) types are tremendously significant in Australian numismatics. Now, here’s your chance to secure these landmark issues – in luminous, precious silver!

Issued for the 200th anniversary of European Settlement, the 1988 $1 Bicentennial Silver Proof and 1988 $2 Bicentennial Silver Proof both carry superbly balanced, richly symbolic designs. The 1988 $1 Superb in mere Aluminium-Bronze, these coins are elevated to new heights in lustrous sterling silver, crafted to Proof perfection by the Royal Australian Mint.

Commemorate two critical moments for Australia with the 2017 Pride and Passion 50c Silver Proof. Struck from 99.9% pure silver, this beautiful RAM release honours both the landslide 1967 referendum granting Indigenous Australians recognition in the constitution, and the 25th anniversary of the Eddie Mabo land rights case.
