The first coins &lsquominted&rsquo in Australia were created by removing a piece from the centre of a Spanish dollar, forming two separate coins known as the Holey Dollar and Dump. The gold rush of the mid-19th Century resulted in numerous unofficial tokens and ingots until the Sydney Mint opened in 1855, producing sovereigns which had been largely identical to their British counterparts. This English influence remained powerful and the new national currency of 1910 inevitably emulated English lbs, shillings and pence. On 14 February 1966, the changeover to decimal currency transformed the nation, as Australia joined a globally currency trend. The uniquely Australian pictures of the decimal coins are nevertheless cherished on their 50th anniversary.
