The Complete Guide to Australian 50 Cent Coins


This guide gives a complete list of Australian 50 cent coins issued to date including links to and article on each different Australian 50c coin design. We’ve also written an article about 50 cent coin values in 2009 and revisited the 50 cent coin value topic again in 2012. The 1966 Round 50 cent Coin coin is always a subject that interests collectors new and old and we’ve written some articles on how much round 50 cent coins are worth.

The Round 50 cent revisited

The round 50 cent coin was also minted in 2006 for the 2006 RAM proof set and again in 2010 for the very limited 2010 Heritage Set. The value of these Australian 50 cent pieces is considerably different to that of the 1966 round 50 cent. It was again issued in 2016 celebrating 50 years of decimal currency with a gold plated cupro-nickel coin, a selectively gold plated silver proof and an 80% silver coin.
