Celebrating the history and art of Australian coinage for the first time, Inside the Vault uncovers the fascinating story of the nation’s currency. Bestselling author Peter Rees traces significant events – the Rum Rebellion, the gold rushes of the 19th century, the opening of the Royal Australian Mint, the introduction of decimal currency in 1966 – and their effect on Australia’s coinage.

Lavishly illustrated, Inside the Vault includes never-before-seen design sketches and images of key Australian coins along with stunning images of important events and people in the history of Australian coinage.

Interesting but not as thorough as I'd hoped

3

The book is a great yarn and fine overview of our history of numismatics, especially the change-over to decimal in '66. I had hoped it would be a bit more thorough in listing and evaluating all circulating and non-circulating currency since the advent of the Melbourne and Sydney Mints and RAM. This needn't have detracted from the fantastic narrative but could have enhanced the great story as an addenda.
