Mr COPE (WATSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I wish to ask the Treasurer a question. Is it a fact that the new decimal coins of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, and 50 cents denominations will not have the word *' cent " inscribed on the first of the coins mentioned or the word " cents " inscribed on the others? If this is a fact, what is the reason for this, bearing in mind that other countries using decimal coinage include the appropriate word " cent " or " cents " on the coins?
