Sales History

Struck along side the Perth mint half penny and penny, and the threepence, the 1964 penny is the last pre-decimal coin to be struck in Australia. With 10 million pieces struck to serve just two years of circulation, numerous unused bank rolls of 1964 pennies have surfaced making the coin very common in mint state . Sourcing the date with full mint brilliance can be quite easy although the date does pose quite a challenge if desired in MS65 and is very rare in MS66.
