Some interesting facts: The round Australian 50 cents was introduced at the changeover to decimal currency in Australia in 1966.

It's 31.5mm round and the only round 50c, containing 80% silver and 20% Copper.

Weighing 13.28 grams with 0.3416oz of silver it wasn't long before the value of the silver content far outweighed the 50c face value and it was withdrawn from production and replaced in 1969 with the dodecagonal-12 sided shape.

The reverse design on the 1966 round 50c is the Australian Coat of Arms by Stuart Devlin. The obverse is the young portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin.

NB* Please note that the setting is hand made so there may be some variation in thickness. Making them all the more unique and special.

Mr Blackwood:  He’s seductive, powerful, and mysterious. Spicy citrus, patchouli, cedar wood, warm leather, and musk. Be prepared to fall in love.
