Important, distinctive and rare, we are proud to present the George V Red 1d Die Proof. The equivalent of an early Australian predecimal Proof coin, this great Australian rarity is known by just six examples.

In stamp production, a 'Die Proof' is an image taken directly from the master die of an engraved stamp. Printed with extra pressure onto a highly glazed card, Die Proofs are of very high quality, due to the use of the master die. In contrast, stamps issued for use are printed from a plate upon which the master die has been transferred on multiple occasions. Produced for archival or presentation purposes, Die Proofs are created in tiny numbers - as evidenced by the excessively rare Red 1d Die Proof.
