The 1937 (m) Australian Crown.

Struck from .925 Silver, 38.5mm in diameter, and weighing 28.22 grams. An amazing part of Australia's Pre-decimal coinage.

Both obverse and reverse legends retain trace lustre and good detail.
I would grade this coin as Extremely Fine.

Supplied in a brand-new 2½ x 2½ Mylar coin flip.

As imaged.

Approximately 1,008,000 minted in Melbourne, Australia.

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.
