This coin was released into circulation by the RAM to commemorate the Changeover 50 years ago in 1966 to decimal currency in Australia.
The Reverse of the coin is the same as a standard definitive 1 Dollar coin. The Obverse of the coin has a miniature Ian Rank-Broadly Queens Head and a representation of an Australian Florin coin (2 Shillings) as issued between 1953 to 1964. This coin was released into circulation in 2016 alongside the normal definitive version.
This was the UNC Mint Set.
The RAM issued a "Push in Folder" for collectors to keep all six of the "Changeover" circulating coins:
A version of the coin with a (C) Counterstamp was released as part of the "Enlightenment" celebration in Canberra. Mintage 5,000 but purportedly only 600 actually issued.
