The ten dollar State Series of silver coins issued by the Royal Australian Mint are very collectible coins not for their numismatic value but for their silver content! These coins simply don’t appeal to many collectors for their value as a collectible coin so for the most part are traded as silver bullion. They have a face value of $10 but their silver value exceeds this and changes every day with the bullion silver price and the exchange rate. This is known as silver stacking!
These coins were issued between 1985 and 1993, each year with the Coat of Arms of a different state of Australia. The Australian $10 dollar state series coins were minted in both uncirculated and proof quality of 92.5% sterling silver and 7.5% copper. They all have edge reeding, are 34mm in diameter and weigh 20 grams each.
