The back features the Southern Cross Bullion shield at the centre of a stunning star pattern stamped deeply into the hard metal.

As well as reeded edges – typically only seen on coins – a special year-date marking is applied to the back of the bar which can only be seen under ultra-violet light. Each bar comes with an individually serial numbered sticker for insurance and auditing purposes.

1966 Round Fifty Cents

 

Min 8 $11.25 each plus $6 postage

200 – 300 $10.50 each plus $25 postage

The 50 cent coin was first introduced with decimalisation on 14 February 1966. The original design featured the Commonwealth Coat of Arms struck on an 80 per cent silver coin. Silver prices rose above the face value of the coin in 1967 and striking of the coin was suspended in March 1968. Although it was rumoured that the Royal Australian Mint had lost money on striking these coins, all metal used in the manufacture of the 36.5 million coins produced was purchased before the price rises. Each coin is slightly above one third troy ounce of silver.

Apart from the uneconomic cost of continuing the issue of the silver 50 cents, significant negative comment arose from confusion of the circular coin with the 20 cents. The decision to reissue a 50 cent coin considered not only a change to materials but also different shapes to help solve confusion with the 20 cents. A new shape and alloy was reintroduced into circulation in September 1969.
