The 1938 Crown is an absolute must for any predecimal collection, with its small mintage and large size. Struck from sterling silver, this stunning coin is all the more breathtaking in about Uncirculated condition.

In 1937, the crown denomination was introduced into Australian circulation. Brought in to coincide with the Coronation of George VI, this coin was beautiful to look at. It spanned a generous 38.50mm and featured a regal reverse motif: the perfect tribute to a new King. However, as a circulating coin, it fell short.

The crown received a poor reception from the general public, who felt it was simply too bulky for practical everyday use. Minting continued into 1938, but was halted just some months into the new year. The mintage of 1938-dated crowns remained a meagre 101,600.

Do not miss your chance to secure the 1938 Crown in premium grade! This critical coin would form the ultimate centerpiece to your predecimal collection - click 'add to cart' now!
