The Type 7 is a great rarity with perhaps twelve examples available to collectors. To put that figure into perspective a collector will wait at least one to two years for an example to come onto the market.

And if you are looking for a premium quality Type 7, such as this coin, then your wait will be even longer.

This coin is superb for quality, highly detailed and well struck and an exception to those most commonly found. It has proof like characteristics that are seldom if ever seen.

Technical comments: Five different designs were tested in 1920, only four of which are available to collectors. The fifth is housed in the Museum of Victoria. They are referenced as the Type 7, 8, 9 and 10 and the museum piece, the Type 13
