First Currency Determination for 2011 -Circulation Coins

March 28, 2011

The department of Treasury have today released the first currency determination for 2011 with some interesting potential coins in the pipeline for this year. I say potential coins because being included in the determination doesn't mean these coins will be struck, it simply means they have been approved by the government. A final determination will be made by treasury at a later date and it may well be that they consider enough coins of a certain denomination to be in circulation and one of the releases just will not happen. We saw this with the 2011 Australian Day 50c that wasn't.

This determination includes three circulating 20c designs, this means all 3 are set to be released into pocketchange.
1. Royal Wedding 20c
2. Centenary of International Womens Day 20c
3. 10th anniversary of International Year of Volunteers (IYV) 20c

Aluminium bronze commemorative dollars set to be released into circulation are:
1. CHOGM (Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting) Perth $1

If all 4 coins are minted and released into circulation then this will be one of the few times that we have seen so many different themed commemoratives in the one year enter circulation.
