Sales History


One of the easier Perth mint dates of the series, with a relatively high mintage of 22 million, the 1949 Perth is readily available in circulated grades. However in mint state the date surprisingly tough, appearing on the market only a couple of times per year, most coming off impaired dies making higher grade mint state pieces rare.
