About Very Fine
The Turner Collection
Complete edge denticles that ‘picture-frame’ the coin. A strong Crown, legend New South Wales and date 1813. This Dump has all the attributes that a collector would look for and is at least two grades higher than your average example. When William Henshall created the nation’s first coins, the Holey Dollar and the Dump, he began the process by punching a hole into a Spanish Silver Dollar. The Dump was the centre piece that fell out of the silver dollar and was over stamped by Henshall with a value of fifteen pence, the date 1813, a crown and the issuing authority of New South Wales. Revered as one of Australia’s classic coin rarities, the coin is in demand at all quality levels and all dollar levels.

The 1813 Dump and its partner the Holey Dollar were the first coins struck in Australia. Not only are they rare, but their fascinating history has made them two of the world’s most famous coins.

The Dump with a value of fifteen pence circulated widely in the colony, the very reason why most Dumps are found today with minimal design attributes, harsh gouges and knocks and many of them are noted as having been submerged in water, developing porous surfaces.

This 1813 Dump ticks all the boxes.

  • The coin has complete edge denticles, an extraordinary attribute rarely seen in even the highest quality Dumps.


  • William Henshall left his mark by engraving an 'H' into some – but not all – of the dies used to strike the Dump. This coin has it. And its presence is highly prized.
  • A beautifully centred striking. It is noted that this Dump was struck using the Type A/1 dies.
  • A solid Crown showing the pearls and the fleur de lis.
  • Strong legend New South Wales.
  • A prominent date of 1813 that is well contained within the edge of the coin.
  • The value of Fifteen Pence is strong and three dimensional.

Every box is ticked. Including a price that wont break the bank.
