With its small mintage and large size, the 1938 Crown is an absolute must for any predecimal collection. This sterling silver stunner is surprisingly affordable in Very Fine condition, as here.

In 1937, the Coronation of George VI called for a numismatic tribute, and the crown denomination was introduced into Australian circulation. This coin was beautiful to look at: it spanned a generous 38.50mm and featured a regal reverse motif. It was the perfect tribute to a new King - but as a circulating coin, it fell short.

Considered too bulky to be practical, the crown received a poor reception from the general public. 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.

The 1938 Crown is an essential component to any predecimal collection. This critical coin is surprisingly affordable in Very Fine - click 'add to cart' now!
