2015 Fine Silver Proof Year Set
The 2015 Fine Silver Proof Year Set is dedicated to showcasing Australian circulating coin designs. In this set the familiar becomes extraordinary. The silver proof finish brings out the finer details of the designs that were not evident through coins in circulation. This is especially the case on the obverse; the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II looks its absolute best, reminding collectors why silver proof is so highly prized.
HISTORY AND SIGNIFICANCE
On 14 February 1966, a new era in Australian currency began. The imperial system of pounds, shillings and pence was replaced by decimal currency. This represented Australia’s move in joining a worldwide money trend and an opportunity for the country’s new coin designs to reflect a truly Australian identity.
These coins were designed by Stuart Devlin, showcasing a range of uniquely-Australian wildlife. While there have been some changes throughout the years, they have become enduring icons of Australian culture. They were joined in 1984 by the one dollar coin and in 1988 by the two dollar coin.
The Royal Australian Mint has produced these coins since their introduction and celebrated a number of significant themes and events on commemorative, uncirculated and proof coins that have captured the hearts and minds of many.
