Commonwealth Silver Coinage Silver Coin

Commonwealth Silver Coinage Silver Coin

This commemorative issue celebrates the 100 anniversary of the introduction of Commonwealth silver coins. The seeds of this seminal event in the history of Australian coinage were sown in 1901 when, under the new Constitution, control of Australia’s currency was vested in the Commonwealth. Subsequently, the Coinage Act of 1909 saw the replacement of British gold, silver and bronze coins with the Commonwealth’s own coinage, beginning with the 1910 dated Australian florin, shilling, sixpence and threepence depicting King Edward VII. This commemorative issue is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality. The coin’s coloured reverse portrays King Edward VII and a collection of Australia’s florin, shilling, sixpence and threepence coins issued in 1910. Incorporating The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design is encircled by the inscription CENTENARY OF AUSTRALIAN COMMONWEALTH SILVER COINAGE 1910 2010. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin depicts the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2010 year date on the obverse. No more than 7,500 of these coins will be released. Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, each coin is housed in a presentation case and blue box shipper depicting a coloured image of King Edward VII and Australia’s first silver coins. Edward VII died while the bulk of the silver coins were in transit to Australia from the Royal Mint in England. As a result, Australia’s first bronze coins were issued for King George V in 1911 – the subject of a complementary follow up coin scheduled for release in late 2010.
