@lordtimoty shared some cool silver Australian coins the other day so I figured to share two cool silver Australian shillings I recently acquired:

The first which is from 1958 features on the front side Queen Elizabeth and reads

+ELIZABETH·II·DEI·GRATIA·REGINA·F:D: M · G ·

for:

ELIZABETH II DEI GRATIA REGINA FIDEI DEFENSATRIX / Elizabeth II by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith (LMAO!)

whereas the second from 1946 features GEORGE IV and reads

GEORGIVS VI D:G:BR:OMN:REX F:D:IND:IMP for

George VI by the Grace of God, King of all the British territories, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India

On the back side both of them feature a Ram's head

Each coin is about the size of a euro coin and has 5.65 g of 0.500 silver

And here's a comparison to the rest of silver Australian coins I own, 50 cents from 1966 and six pence from 1962:

All 4 have a total of 17.689 g silver. Neat!

More precious coins and shit

They're looking ridiculously new and even worth more than the price. Wow, no holes this time.

Australian silver coin always looking cool and obvious. Quite still surprising they still look worth much even after their lifespan

Until @trumpman does, you'll have to do with my Japanese silver in one of my old posts. They are also sprinkled about the comments section of the post. Domo Arigato ⛩

And yes, I swing a Functional Iaido Katana.

Pretty cool! I think my dad may have a couple of those as
Well! My grandfather had a coin collection which my dad inherited. So I guess I’ll get it eventually. But my son did an economics project on currency, specifically old coins and how currency began. It was such a fun project to do using all my grandfathers old coins from the collection. He even had a couple very old DEIC coins from Indonesia. So fascinating.

These Australia coins are Vintage. They have a nice color to definitely worth many times more than it's silver value !

Emperor of India doesn't sound as good now as it did 60 years ago :)) I bet the old hag misses the good old imperialistic days

I think you tagged the wrong person.

Also, nice coins and you have a lot of silver. Too much that I can't keep track.

Morning Trumpy, I do love the Shillings!
In 1991, the Ram's head made another appearance on the circulating 1991 50 cent piece. The coin was a celebration of 25 years of decimal currency.

You know what else I love, The Royal Australian Mint is known as the RAM.

Thanks for the info !
