The 1937 Crown is Australia's largest predecimal coin. Measuring 38.50mm, this imposing coin was not well received when issued for the Coronation of King George VI. However, the expansive girth that had it sneered at by the public made it a hit with collectors. Once dubbed 'Casey's Cartwheel' after the treasurer who instituted it, this coin is highly sought-after today.

Struck at the Melbourne Mint from sterling silver, the 1937 Crown was afforded a small mintage of just one million. On the pages of history, it was inherently unlucky. Its poor reception from the public brought production to a halt in early 1938, leaving it a two-year-only issue. And those that remained were often melted down for their intrinsic value.

As a result, sourcing good-quality examples is becoming increasingly difficult. That's why we are delighted to offer this sought-after coin in Extremely Fine!

A fitting centerpiece to an Australian predecimal collection, secure your 1937 Crown today. Click 'add to cart' now!
