Australia’s longest serving Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies held a keen interest in the introduction of Australia’s decimal currency, symbolised by his monogrammed coin pouch which held prototypes of each Aussie coin introduced in the 1960s.

The coins in his pouch are discoloured at the edges, but remain quite shiny in the centre. Find out more at: Treasure Trove: Menzies’ coin pouch – ABC Canberra – Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
