Description:

Standing proudly among the great icons of Australian numismatics, the 1813 NSW Silver Dump is exceedingly rare in any grade. Featuring strong detail in the lettering, the date and the crown, we have an example of this early colonial rarity available in seldom seen good Very Fine.


One of the first two coin types struck in Australia, this unusually high-grade 1813 Dump was among the 40,000 punched from the centre of 40,000 Spanish-American Silver 8 Reales procured by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in 1812. The Dump and the outer ring of the restruck Spanish silver coins, the Holey Dollar, were the lifeblood of the colonial economy until the 1820s.


When legal tender status was withdrawn in 1829, most were either swapped for British currency or melted for the silver. As a result, it is thought that less than 1,000 Dumps exist today. A huge majority of those coins are very well worn, with only a tiny percentage remaining in better grade.


Offered just a few times a year in the upper echelons of quality, this is a prestigious opportunity to secure a superior example of this extremely rare, deeply historic coin. In good Very Fine, with a couple of 'old time', nicely re-toned scratches, immediate action is recommended.
