AUSTRALIA 1923 HALFPENNY IN FINE
An honest example of Australia's second rarest Commonwealth copper coin.1923 Royal (Branch) Mint records indicate that 1,113,600 halfpennies were struck in Sydney, while none were struck in Melbourne at all. The story doesn't end here however; as later research by John Sharples, (Numismatic Curator of the Museum of Victoria) has proven that the coins struck in Sydney in 1923 were actually dated 1922. The elusive 1923 halfpenny was actually struck in Melbourne sometime between September and November 1923, with the number struck assumed to be around 20,000.This example has a fair amount of wear through the centre of the crown and along the cheek line on the obverse. The reverse has a modest amount of wear - all of the dots in the inner circle of the reverse remain distinct, and the coin has an even tone to both sides.This coin will make a great addition to a collect on a budget. We grade it as being in Fine condition. Authenticity and grade guaranteed in writing, we are members of ANDA and are bound by a strict code of conduct.
