The Australian Shilling was a coin used in the Commonwealth of Australia prior to the decimalisation of Australian coinage in 1966. The shillings were part of Australian silver coinage and minted from 1910 to 1963.
There are two distinctive designs of the Australian shilling. The first displayed the Australian Coat of Arms and then in 1938 they changed the design to a Merino ram’s head. In addition to the design differences shillings minted from 1910 to 1938 have a silver purity of 92.5% for a troy ounce weight of 0.168 whereas those minted after 1946 have a purity of 50% for a troy ounce weight of 0.0908.
