The Australian 5 cent coin was first introduced with decimalisation on 14 February 1966 when it replaced the pre-decimal Australian sixpence. The original reverse design by Stuart Devlin has not been changed since its introduction.
This coin design was issued in the baby mint sets of the year only; three of the coins in the set are re-imagined versions of the "definitive" types and are designed as baby toys. The five-cent coin shows a wooden "posable" echidna - a popular children's toy made of wood and pieces of rope.
These coins are Non-Circulating Legal Tender (collector issue). No coins of this type have been released into circulation.
