Dodecagonal Type III

1999 - 2016


The Ian-Rank Broadley portrait of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II was introduced to the fifty cent in 1999 providing a more mature face of the Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Other than this, the Type III Fifty Cent is identical to previous issues with Australia's coat of arms on the reverse around the digit 50. A number of different strike types were issued along side the standard business strike, specimen strike and proof strike. From 2001, the Royal Australian mint intermittently issued gold proof strikes and from 2003 the mint issued silver proof strikes. In addition, from 2002 to 2009 the mint issued wedding coin sets containing deep mirror specimen strikes. These were subsequently replaced by proof strikes in 2010.
