Sales History

?

The 1955 proof threepence is a rare piece with a mintage of just 311 though 733 specimen strikes were also struck which most collectors collect as the same type. The piece can be distinguished by an intense mirror finish as opposed to the specimen strike which has a cartwheel finish. Unlike the higher denominations, the strike depth between the proof and specimen strikes are similar indicating that the Melbourne mint had no problem striking up the smaller sized coin.
