The ten cent coin was first introduced with decimal currency on 14 February 1966. The original reverse design of the lyrebird on standard circulating coins has not been changed since the introduction. The obverse design was altered in 2016 to mark the 50th anniversary of decimal currency, but the reverse design of the lyrebird has remained constant.
