Aussie silver – struck in the USA!

Struck at the Denver and San Francisco Mints as the USA assisted Australian coin production during WWII, the 1942-44 USA S&D Mintmark Complete Silver 16-Coin Collection is a unique piece of Australia’s history. Very scarce in superior grade, this is your chance to secure the COMPLETE collection in about Uncirculated to Uncirculated condition!

Huge demand for currency in WWII…

The heightened demand for currency in Australia was largely due to the post-Depression recovery. It was also attributable to the influx into Australia of heavy spending American servicemen during the Second World War. Even with the Perth Mint brought out of ‘retirement’ to assist the Melbourne Mint, Australia could not strike sufficient coinage to meet demand.

Complete 16-coin collection!

The USA stepped up to the plate, and the series of 16 coins that resulted forms one of the most fascinating chapters of the Australian predecimal story. Graced with S and D mintmarks, and notable for the lustrous glow in premium grade, this complete set comprises five threepences (1942S, 1942D, 1943S, 1943D & 1944S), five sixpences (1942S, 1942D, 1943S, 1943D & 1944S), three shillings (1942S, 1943S, & 1944S) and three florins (1942S, 1943S, & 1944S).

Just a few sets available!
