Sales History


In 1959 1,506 commercial proof strikes were produced at the Melbourne mint. The date is the toughest commercial proof florin to obtain in high quality with most example being lightly rubbed or wiped due to the primitive packaging they were distributed with. The type can easily be distinguished from the business strikeby the presence of a die blob behind the emu's front leg on the reverse of the business strike. This isn't present on the proof strike.
