The Sydney mintspecimen
strikes of 1926 were produced during the final months of the Sydney mint
of the issue is unknown but considering the
of the earlier Sydney mint
strikes, it is unlikely that more than 10 examples were produced. The
strike can be identified by an intensely sharp strike, atypical of the Sydney mint strikes of 1926 though one must be
careful not to confuse the coin with a Melbourne mint
business strike which were typically quite well struck up. The
strike has even surfaces paired with very subtle
bloom though one must almost be careful not to confuse this with a dulled business strike.
