25th anniversary of the removal Australia’s 1 and 2 cent coins from circulation


This month we pass the 25 year anniversary since our bronze coloured coins were removed from circulation. Although this was a quarter of a century ago, the designs on these pieces are still loved today. There are many facts that you may not know about these bronze delights and to mark this anniversary we are sharing some with you - see below:
