COMMENTS
Barrie Winsor had the privilege, and the pleasure, of cataloguing the Reserve Bank of Australia (R.B.A.) inventory that was sold by Australian Coin Auctions in 2005. Right from the outset Winsor had this 1887 Young Head Half Sovereign in his sights, pegged as one of the absolute finest of one of the key coins in the Australian half sovereign series.

Acquired from the Reserve Bank of Australia Auction held by Australian Coin Auctions in 2005 where it sold for $10,500 on a pre-auction estimate of $6000.

State Labour politicians met in Sydney to formally establish the Federal Labour Party. The first Australian contingents of naval volunteers set sail for China to assist British and international troops during the Boxer Rebellion and natural gas was found at Roma in Queensland.
