Austraila's Round 50 cent coins
#8

I have heard the story/read the story or I really can't remember, that the first coin produced/minted for the Decimal coins was the 50c piece as it was the biggest coin to be issued. These were minted as early as 1964 as the presses were required to do literally millions of coins for the change to decimal currency.

In fact, a vast majority of the 1966 decimal coins were minted in a couple of years leading up to 1966 because of the quantity required.

Remembering that the presses back in 1966 and before were not the speedie things that they have now.

If I can find my sources of the above I shall post again.
