Australian coins price guide and values - Pre-decimal coins
It wasn't until 1910, nine years after Federation, that Australia again created its own currency – the Australian pound. Even then, its coins were minted by branches of Britain's Royal Mint in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Half penny (½d), penny (1d), threepence (3d), sixpence (6d), shilling (1s), florin (2s) and crown (5s) circulated in the country. Production of half-sovereigns ceased in 1916, followed by that of sovereigns in 1931.
The value of a pre-decimal australian coin depends on several factors such as quality and wear, supply and demand, rarity, finish and more.
