Historical information

When Australia changed from imperial currency to decimal currency on 14/2/1966, a well-planned operation of conversion took place. This involved changing public transport tickets as well, especially those where a printed value was shown. The MMTB printed dual currency tickets as part of the process. This set of tickets show the value in both imperial and decimal currency 1 schilling or 1/- = 10 cents, 2 schillings or 2/- = 20c, and 2 schillings and 6 pence or 2/6 = 25 cents.
