The 1937 Crown is Australia's largest circulating coin. It was issued to commemorate the coronation of George VI - an occasion worthy of a majestic tribute. At 38.50mm, and with a superb reverse motif, 'majestic' it certainly was. However, its sheer size proved to be its Achilles Heel. The general public found it simply too bulky to be practical.

Struck at the Melbourne Mint from sterling silver, the 1937 Crown was issued with a mintage of just one million. Betrayed by its precious metal composition, this coin was frequently melted down for its intrinsic metal value. As a result, sourcing premium-grade examples is becoming increasingly difficult.

Having proven itself virtually obsolete as a circulating coin, the crown denomination was abandoned in Australia after just two years. However, the 1937 Crown is prized by collectors today. In the pinnacle of Uncirculated condition, as here, it would form the ultimate centerpiece to any Predecimal collection. Do not miss this opportunity!
