The 1934-35 proof Melbourne Centenary refers to the 50 coins sold by the Melbourne mint to H. G. Williams as special strikes to be sold to the international market. The coin features a squared rim on the reverse with mirror surfaces on both faces. There were two and possibly a third die used to strike this issue so it is possible that more than 50 examples were struck, these may have later entered circulation.
These coins were not originally sold as proof strikes with at least one client of H.G. Williams returning the coin due to its poor quality. Despite this today they are collected and considered proof strikes.
