4 About the One dollar coin. The $1 coin was first introduced on 14 May Planning for a $1 coin commenced as early as the mid-1970s. It was recognised that Australia needed a higher value coin which could be practically used in coin operated machines and to replace the $1 note which had a short service life through high use. Mr Stuart Devlin was commissioned to design the reverse of the new coin. The five kangaroos design was chosen from submissions received from the designer.

5 About the two dollar coin. The $2 coin was first introduced on 20 June Planning for a $2 coin commenced around the same time as that for the $1 coin. Like the $1 coin, the $2 coin replaced the note of the same denomination which had a short service life through high use. A number of designers were invited to contribute designs for the $2 based on a design brief to include a representation of the head and shoulders of a traditional Australian Aboriginal, a representation of the Southern Cross and a representation of Australian flora. The selected design was prepared by Mr Horst Hahne, with inspiration taken from a drawing by Mr Ainslie Roberts. The size of the $2 was determined after consideration of the needs of the visually impaired community, security considerations, a desire to avoid shaped coins, practical limitations to the diameter and thickness of coins, and to allow for future expansion of Australia's circulating coin array. When introduced, it was necessary to accommodate this new coin with seven existing denominations

6 About twenty cents. The 20 cent coin was first introduced with decimalisation on 14 February The original reverse design remained unchanged until This denomination has since been used infrequently for commemorative designs. All of the first issue of 20 cent coins in 1966 was produced at the Royal Mint, London. The Royal Australian Mint did not commence 20 cent coin production until the next financial year. Quantities of 20 cents have also been struck by the Royal Mint, Llantrisant and the Royal Canadian Mint.

7 About ten cent coins. The 10 cent coin was first introduced with decimalisation on 14 February The original reverse design has not been changed since the introduction. All of the first issue of 10 cent coins in 1966 was produced at the Royal Mint, London. Since the first production from London, 10 cent coins have been produced by the Royal Australian Mint and the Royal Mint, Llantrisant.

8 About The five cent coin The 5 cent coin was first introduced with decimalisation on 14 February The original reverse design has not been changed since the introduction. All of the first issue of 5 cent coins in 1966 was produced at the Royal Mint, London. Since the first production from London, 5 cent coins have been produced by the Royal Australian Mint, the Royal Mint, Llantrisant and the Royal Canadian Mint.

9 About Queen Elizabeth. The first portrait of Her Majesty on Australian decimal coinage was designed by Arnold Machin OBE RA for the British Royal Mint and approved in This portrait was adopted for the obverse design of Australia's new coinage to be released on C-Day, 14 February 1966 and preceded its first use on British coins in Australian decimal coins have carried four portraits of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second. The inclusion of an effigy of the Queen on the obverse of Australia's coinage is mandated by Regulation 4 (c) of the Currency Regulations made under the Currency Act Portraits of Her Majesty have all faced to the right in line with a convention, said to have commenced with Charles II ( ), that the new Monarch's portrait would face in a direction opposite to that of their predecessor.
