The 1938 (m) Australian Crown.

Struck from .925 Silver, 38.5mm in diameter, and weighing 28.27 grams. An amazing part of Australia's Pre-decimal coinage.

Approximately 101,000 minted in Melbourne, Australia.

It is considered a Harder Date.

In 1937, the crown denomination was introduced into Australian circulation. Brought in to coincide with the Coronation of George VI, this coin was beautiful to look at. It spanned a generous 38.50mm and featured a regal reverse motif: the perfect tribute to a new King. However, as a circulating coin, it fell short.

The crown received a poor reception from the general public, who felt it was simply too bulky for practical everyday use. Minting continued into 1938, but was halted just some months into the new year. The mintage of 1938-dated crowns remained a meagre 101,600.

I would grade this coin as Uncirculated. It retains an immense amount of original lustre, and has no discernible wear.

This coin will be supplied in a brand new SAFLIP.

Please see images to make a personal grading, as this is the exact coin you will receive.
