Sales History


The Type III ten cent piece has been issued regularly since 1999. The type features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II which was introduced to put a more mature face of HM on Australia's circulating currency. The reverse contains Stuart Devlin's superb lyrebird design. Devlin's initials (SD) can be found beside the birds foot (see image below).

A number of different strike types have been issued in addition to the standard business, specimen, and proof strikes. From 2001, the Royal Australian Mint has 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 which were subsequently replaced by proof strikes in 2010.
