Detailed information about Coin: Two Cents 2006 (Silver, Second Portrait) from Australia
Australian one cent coins were withdrawn from circulation in February 1992. However (as of 2016), they are still legal tender.
In 2006, no circulation coins were issued; they were only produced for mint sets (regular coins and proofs).
Unlike all other coins of the same year, silver proofs have Her Majesty's "second effigy" (by Arnold Machin), which was last used in Australia in 1984. They have a diameter of 21.6mm, weigh 5.18g and are of 0.999 purity (0.1664 oz. ASW).
