The Australian 10 cent coin was first introduced with decimalisation on 14 February 1966 when it replaced the pre-decimal Australian shilling. The original reverse design by Stuart Devlin has not been changed since its introduction.
This coin was issued in a mint set marking the introduction of the Queen's Fifth Effigy in Australia, called Effigies Over Time. The set - with a mintage of 20, 000 - featured $2 with the Jody Clark portrait, $1 with the Gottwald portrait, 50 cents with the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait, 20 cents with the Maklouf portrait, 10 cents with the Machin portrait and 5 cents with the Mary Gillick portrait.
These coins are Non-Circulating Legal Tender (collector issue). No coins of this type have been released into circulation.
