Issued by the Royal Australian Mint to mark one of the most important numismatic landmarks of the year, this impressive and eminently affordable release pays homage to the 100th anniversary of Australia’s first national banknotes – unveiled in 1913. Celebrating the history of Australian banknote production with the power of modern minting, the 2013 20c & 50c Centenary of Australian Banknotes Cu-Ni Unc Trio features two superbly designed 20c coins depicting the vignettes from Australia’s first Ten Shillings and £1 banknote issues – unveiled in 1913.

Each coin is beautifully presented within an individual, highly informative card, with all three coins united within a handsome, official outer pack. Importantly for all serious decimal collectors, none of the three coins will be issued for circulation, and will never be found in change.
