The Evolution Of Australian Coinage

One of the first coins struck in Australia, the Holey dollar is the outer part of a Spanish Silver Dollar which had the middle punched out of it.  The middle part formed a second small coin known as the ‘dump’.  40,000 Spanish Silver Dollars were imported as a unique solution to NSW’s coin shortage and Governor Bligh’s 1806 ban on rum as a currency.

Entering circulation in 1814, the 1813 Holey Dollar and Dump Struck was demonetised in 1829.  A number of the coins were exchanged for legal tender and melted into bullion.

The Holey Dollar and Dump is the first step through Australia’s rich coin production history.  Other recreations in this commemorative collection include Australia’s first gold sovereign, struck at the Sydney Mint in 1855 and the 1909 Australian Florin which never made it into production.
