The years 1965-1977 belong to KM#59.1 while the 1978-1979 coins are classified under KM#59.2. This is because the compositions and thickness differ:

KM#59.1: 98% copper, 0.5% tin, 1.5% zinc (thickness 1.65mm)
KM#59.2: 98% copper, 1.75% tin, 0.25% zinc (thickness 1.52mm)

Additionally, the 1979 coins feature a smaller effigy of the Queen than any of the previous years.
