Comments

This is the second version of the standard Australian 1 Cent Feather tailed Glider coin displaying the Raphael David Makleouf 3rd portrait of the Queen. The decision to stop minting it was announced in August 1990. the main reasons included the diminishing purchasing power of the coin and the rising costs of its production which eventually overtook its face value.
