Like the 1c, Australia’s 2c coin was deemed unnecessary by the late 1980s, with inflationary pressures rendering the coin obsolete. Although the 2c was struck in every year until demonetised in 1991, most of the final dates can only be found in RAM Mint Sets, with few issued for general public use.

First seen at decimalisation in 1966, but ultimately undermined by inflation, Australia’s 1c coin was demonetised in 1991. A memorable keepsake of the final years of this iconic copper coin, this set comprises an example of every 1c coin issued for circulation bearing the Raphael Maklouf portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.


1985 – 90 1c Circulating Set Unc

Taken from original RAM bags, and therefore defined by strictly Uncirculated quality, this 6-coin set is sensational value-for-money at just $26.95. Pay little more than $4 per coin!

It is the potential long-term scarcity of coins such as the 2007 Platypus 20c and 2008 Platypus 20c that makes an offer such as this so crucial. An incredibly affordable opportunity to ensure you maintain a complete collection in the highest possible quality, we have the 2007 Platypus 20c and 2008 Platypus 20c in sparkling Uncirculated condition – at an astonishingly low price!

Unlike commemoratives, which are hoarded en masse, standard Australian decimal types are seldom stashed away at the time of issue. It is only in later years, when gaps appear in collections, that collectors turn their attention to these non-commemorative issues, and by then, it is often too late to acquire such coins in premium grade – or at a reasonable price.
