The Australian Mint Set – Royal Australian Mint Uncirculated Year Set Issues


Each year the Royal Australian Mint releases an uncirculated set of collector coins. Most often the coins included in these sets are the standard Stuart Devlin reverses we all recognise as the coins in our change but sometimes a circulating commemorative design or even an NCLT (non-circulating legal tender) coin will be included in the collector set. To make life a little bit easier we have compiled a master list of the coins included in these sets with links in the table to entries on each individual commemorative coins (click on the links where available).
For the first time, 2016 being the 50th anniversary of the changeover to decimal currency the Mint released coins with commemorative obverse designs still with their standard reverses.
