The trigger for the Proclamation

The coin that triggered the Proclamation of 1800, the 1797 Cartwheel Penny is a compelling piece of Australian history. Also one of the foundation stones of Australian numismatics, we can offer this iconic coin in seldom seen about Extremely Fine! The first coin officially exported to the colony of New South Wales – and therefore ‘Australia’s first coin’ – the 1797 Cartwheel Penny was valued at twopence in the Proclamation.
