Comments

In 1999 the 50 cent standard Australian Coat of Arms coin debuted the 4th portrait of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. It has been issued into circulation in every year since then except for  2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, & 2005.

The rarest version is the 2005 PNC only issue at a mintage of only 30,000.


It has also been issued in various Uncirculated & Proof Year sets, Baby Uncirculated & Proof Year sets, Wedding Specimen and Proof Sets, Various PNC's, Uncirculated Berlin WMF Sets, Uncirculated Legends Sets and other special Sets.

In 2019 the RAM released  a special Five-Coin Set to commemorate the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Dodecagon 50 cent Coin. The five coins in the set are each dated 2019 and each one portrays a different effigy of Queen Elizabeth II as used on the 12 sided 50 cent coin since it was introduced in 1969 as well as the new Jody Clark Sixth Effigy introduced on Australian coins in 2019.
 

Fine Silver (.999) Proof versions of this coin have also been issued in various Fine Silver sets.
