The first Australian Half Penny issued with the Kangaroo Reverse, minted at the Melbourne Mint in miniscule numbers.

Renniks 30th edition indicates only 782,000! of the Kangaroo Reverse were minted (probably due to 4.6 million minted of the 1939 Coat of Arms Penny).

I would grade this coin as Fine.
