2006 Australian $1 50 YEARS OF AUSSIE TELEVISION - 'B' MINTMARK

On the evening of September 16, 1956 crowds gathered outside department stores and in homes across Australia to witness the momentous even when TCN - 9 flickered into life with the famous words "Welcome to Television" uttered by Bruce Gyngell.

Television sets cost three times the monthly wage in those days and only about 2,000 homes in Australia's biggest city has one on opening night.

In the 50 years since its appearance in Australia, TV has become the most popular and the fastest means of getting up to date news and entertainment. From seeing the first man walk on the Moon to experiencing events as they happen here and overseas, television has linked Australia to the world and played a large part in the development of Australia as a nation.
