It is with sadness that I advise the death of one of Australia’s numismatics greats, Dr William Mira, on the morning of 2 February 2016. Bill was a long time Member of the ANS, the authority on Holey Dollars, and wrote many books and articles on a range of Australian numismatic topics. His funeral was held on Monday 8 February at Forrest Lawn North Chapel, Leppington NSW.
