$1 Last Note & First Coin Pack Unc
Attractive, affordable and historic, this unique set celebrates a truly radical change in Australia's circulating currency - the demise of the $1 note and birth of the $1 coin.
First issued at decimalisation in February 1966, the short-lived $1 note series ended in 1984 during the Johnston/ Stone signature combination. More durable and offering greater economy, the $1 coin that replaced the note was destined to be a one-year-only issue, as the only $1 to carry the Machin portrait of Elizabeth II.
Landmark Australian currency issues, the Johnston/ Stone $1 note and 1984 Roos $1 coin are both included in this splendid set - both in strictly Uncirculated condition. Top value at A$34.95, Australia's last $1 note and first $1 coin are set within archival bubble and beautifully presented within an informative 244mm x 174mm pack.
