An Australian ‘Proclamation Era’ coin!

A major maritime power, Portugal's gold coins circulated worldwide, and were crucial to the infant colony of New South Wales. Indeed, Portugal’s Gold Johanna was the highest valued coin listed in Governor Philip Gidley King’s Proclamation of 1800 – Australia's first currency system – and the Gold Half Johannas are known as Coins of the Proclamation Era.

Rare and beautiful in equal part…

Struck in tiny numbers, with many melted for the intrinsic value, the Portuguese-Brazil Half Johanna is extremely rare. As exemplified by the stunning coin offered here, this majestic type is also extremely beautiful.

Extremely rare in any condition!

Struck during the reign of Portugal’s King Joseph I, this eye-catching gold Half Johanna is very rare in Extremely Fine quality. A genuine Australian Proclamation Era coin, and a compelling centrepiece of any Australian collection, we have just one example available.
