Sales History


The 1929 Melbourne is the rarest date in the series, coming from a mintage of 436,938. It can be assumed that most of these were melted down from 1929 to 1933 after Australia ceased backing its currency with gold. The date is extremely scarce in all grades with probably under 10 mint state examples. The Melbourne mint also produced a specimen strike that year ( ).
