Last & First Copper Dates!

A unique presentation, encompassing both sides of the predecimal-decimal currency divide, this exciting set features Australia’s LAST halfpenny and penny dates, united with the nation’s FIRST 1c and 2c dates!

Australia’s copper heritage…

Low denominations, crucial for everyday transactions, copper coins have always played a special role in the hearts and minds of Australians. From the time that the 1797 Cartwheel Penny provoked the nation's first official currency system, the Proclamation of 1800, copper coins have formed the bedrock upon which Australian coin collecting has been built. From the first halfpenny in 1911 to the withdrawal of the last 1c in 1992, low denomination copper coinage was a familiar sight to Australians of all ages for more than eight decades of the 20th century.

Currency Crossroads!

The coins issued immediately before and immediately after the official switch from predecimal to decimal currency in February 1966 are historic, symbolic and always popular. A crucial part of Australia’s copper heritage, and a concrete reminder of the most important juncture in Australia’s currency history, this pack unites our last halfpenny and penny dates (1964) and our first 1c and 2c dates (1966). The four coins grade from Very Fine to Extremely Fine.

Within your reach!

A fine keepsake, and a great gift, the set is housed within an informative, illustrated pack. Fantastic value-for-money, secure your set now – click add to cart!
