Australia 2010 20 cents KM-1513
In 1966, Australia abandoned the sterling coinage she had used since the days of Captain Cook and adopted the decimal dollar and cent. This bust of the queen was introduced in 1999 and still appears on the twenty cent piece. This issue marks the centennial of the Australian Taxation Office, an event which surely puzzled many locals.
