The launch of the Commonwealth’s own silver coins in 1910 and first bronze coins in 1911 were key events in the history of modern Australia.

A few years after their introduction, the young nation faced its biggest challenge to that point – a world war of unimaginable carnage and horror.

Drawing together these important themes, this superb pre-decimal coin pack offers collectors an example of all six Commonwealth coins featuring year-dates between the fateful years of 1914 and 1918.

  2. Are these WWI coins re-strikes or original? Also, there are the three commemorative coins also for sale by the Perth Mint – are these re-strikes or original? It seems to me that they are priced very low. If they are re-strikes then how do you tell the difference between the re-strikes and the original coins?

    Thank you.
