The Royal Australian Mint has released this uncirculated three coin set. The coin designs within are inspired by banknote designs originally issued 100 years ago; they feature iconic images of Australia's primary industries of the era. The ten shillings, one pound, and five pounds designs are all celebrated on the coins within this set:
Also, three silver pieces of 25 euros are released, for "Justice, Laicité, Respect (Justice, Laicism, Respect)". And a gold coin of 250 euros for "Paix (Peace)". In september, under subscription, a new gold coin of 500 euros for "République (Republic)" will be issued, to finish the collection.
At the point of Australian federation in 1901, all six-governing colonies had been operating their own postal services and issuing their own stamps. This system was changed in March 1901 with the establishment of the Post-master General's Department, meaning all then-current colony stamps became de facto Commonwealth stamps.
