Comments

The 1 cent coin was never issued into circulation with the Ian Rank-Broadley Effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. However, in 2006, a 1 cent coin with that effigy was included in the Uncirculated Year and Proof Sets to commemorate 40 years of Decimal currency in Australia.

Ten years later, in 2016, another 1 cent coin with the Ian Rank-Broadly Effigy was included in the "In Come the Dollars, in come the Cents" Uncirculated Set to commemorate 50 years of Decimal currency.

The Ram also released Fine Silver (.999) Proof versions of this coin as follows ...

In 2011 in the special Two Coin Fine Silver Proof Set which included a 2 cent coin as well.
In 2016 in the 50th Anniversary of Decimal Currency Fine Silver Proof Set Which included five other coins.
