When Queen Elizabeth II visited Australia in 1954, it caused a national sensation. An estimated 75% of Australia's population turned up to catch a glimpse of the young monarch! Released to commemorate this occasion, the 1954 Royal Visit Florin is sought-after by collectors for its symbolic design and historical significance.

The Queen's 1954 visit was the first time that a reigning British monarch had made a tour on Australian soil. Struck by the Melbourne Mint, this coin formed the ultimate keepsake for an historic event. It is a unique, one-year-only type, and the last predecimal commemorative coin to be issued. It is also the only Queen Elizabeth II predecimal commemorative to have ever been released.

The 1954 Royal Visit Florin is immediately recognisable by its symbolic reverse design. The simple yet powerful motif features a kangaroo and lion standing side-by-side, to represent Australia and England respectively.
