Australian coinage has only been on a decimal system since 1966, which means you don’t have to go back all that far to plunge into a world where 12 pence equal a shilling, two shillings equal a florin, five shillings equal a crown, and 20 shillings (that would be 240 pence) add up to a pound.

For coin collectors, such pieces are relatively easy to come by, and part of the appeal of these coins is to see a young Queen Elizabeth on a penny or half penny’s obverse, with a jumping kangaroo on the other side. Gold sovereigns are also sought after, especially ones from the turn of the 20th century depicting Saint George slaying the proverbial dragon.
