On the obverse of the 1/10 oz Australian Legal Tender Gold Unit is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy featured here is the fourth-generation design created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. It was originally used by the Royal Mint of England and the Perth Mint. Engravings include the Queen’s name, nation of issue, weight, purity, metal content, year of issue, and face value.
The reverse side of the 1/10 oz Australian Legal Tender Gold Units feature the geographic outlines of the United States of America and Australia. The American continent reflects the collaboration between authorized dealers in the US and the Perth Mint in Australia for the development and design of these unique Australian Legal Tender Gold Units.
The Australian dollar was first issued in 1966 as the nation moved toward decimalization of its currency and away from the pounds, shillings, and pence units brought to the continent by the British Empire. The Perth Mint is no longer a sovereign mint of the nation, but the Currency Act of 1965 gives legal tender status to the coins and legal tender gold units it produces.
