1966 Australian 1 Cent Coin - ROYAL MINT MELBOURNE
1966 Australian One Cent Coin. This is the Royal Mint, Melbourne Variety.
"Distinguishing the mint that manufactured this coin is done by looking at the left-most whiskers of the possum. If the left most whisker is blunted then the coin was minted in Melbourne, if the second from the left most whisker is blunted then the coin was minted in Perth. If neither are blunted then the coin was minted in Canberra".
