The Canberra Florin, designed by Kruger Gray, was issued to commemorate the opening of the, now, Old Parliament House
in 1927. It is one of Australia's most popular coins and widely considered to be the most attractive Australian coin. This
beauty, often matched with rainbow toning due to typical storage conditions, combined with
the affordability and availability of the piece in the upper grades makes it a worthwhile acquisition for collectors and
non-collectors alike.The piece is available right up to MS67, though the reverse strike and
the typical concentration of bagmarks on the obverse, usually
limits the date to, at best, an MS65 grading. The date is usually found in MS63 but does occasionally make it into MS64;
examples below MS63 have almost certainly been circulated. Finding an example in MS65 or higher can be quite a challenge.
