threepence is a proof of record striking produced by the Melbourne
mint. Fewer than 10 pieces are thought to have been produced, with only one recent sighting in private hands. The
type can be identified by frosted devices on hazy, mirror
fields with horizontal die polishing
striations across the reverse, though toning may make this less
evident. Unlike most business strikes, surfaces are smooth and even and the coin is generally well
struck up with some very minor weakness to the star.
