Sales History


The 1953 Penny was the first year in the Queen Elizabeth II series. It was struck at both the Royal Mint branches in Melbourne and Perth with total mintage 's of 6,936,000 and 6,202,800 respectively. These two varieties can be differentiated by a small dot mint-mark located after 'AUSTRALIA' on the Perth issue. As a result of the similar mintage figures both mint varieties demand relatively similar prices and are very affordable into mint -state.
