The coins are approximately 20% larger than real coins and have the following dimensions:

  • 5 cent: 24.5mm
  • 10 cent: 29.5mm
  • 20 cent: 36mm

From as early as Year 1, students have to learn to recognise, describe and order Australian coins according to their value. The next step is to count with money and to identify equivalent values in collections of coins, for instance that two coins of $1 are the same value as one coin of $2. This set of play money is perfect to do so. It will help students understand the value of money and is perfect for every early primary school class. Each coin clearly labels ‘Play Money’. The coins are made of plastic and come in a handy storage container. Ages 4+ years
