Sales History

Although evidence of the 1933/2 overdate half penny has existed for quite some time, it is only recently that the coin has been accepted in numismatic circles. In 1933 the treasury requested 4.6 million half pennies be produced but the Melbourne mint neither had enough dies on hand nor enough time to produce them. Consequently, like they did with the penny that year, they overdated dies.
