Sales History


In 1941 the Australian Penny was struck at both the Melbourne and Perth branches of the Royal Mint. There is one Melbourne Mint variety which features no mint-mark and two Perth Mint varieties; one with a small dot located after the 'Y' in Penny and another with a small dot between the initials of the designer 'K.G'. The plain Melbourne variety was struck to a mintage of 1,588,000 which was a lower figure than the Perth variety and quite a low figure overall. Despite this, the coin is reasonably easily obtainable with mint-state examples regularly selling for below $100.
