Sales History


The 1933 penny is one of the more common dates in the series, both in circulated grades and in mint state . Acquiring the coin with original mint brilliance however, can still represent quite a challenge. Just shy of 6 million pieces were produced at the Melbourne mint accounting for its availability today. Six of the 1933 working dies were produced from unused 1932 dies producing the 1933/32 overdate variety. These are fairly scarce and tend to command a premium even in circulated grades. This variety can be quite difficult to notice and is best detected by the presence of a protruding tip at the end of the top half of the 2nd 3 in the date and with the aid of a magnifying glass, can be detected by the presence of the back of a 2 just right of the back of the 2nd 3.
