We have decided that we will let the photographs - and in particular the close-up shot of the Crown - do most of the talking in our offering of this extremely rare, superb quality 1930 Penny. The pie chart in the Read More section also tells its own story and clearly shows the rarity of a coin at this quality level. The technical details of this coin are summarised as follows. The King’s Crown shows six clear and plump pearls. Also a prominent central diamond, the four sides of the diamond clearly visible so that you don’t have to struggle to see it. The reverse is classified similarly at Very Fine. This coin is three times as scarce as your average 1930 Penny. Well preserved, it obviously became a collectable early in its life.

This Very Fine 1930 Penny has 

  1. A full central diamond, with four clear sides of the diamond that leap out and knock you in the eye.
  2. Six clear and plump pearls in the crown.
  3. The oval to the left of the central diamond is intact.
  4. Minimal marks in the field
  5. The reverse is particularly impressive with well-defined upper and lower scrolls and inner beading.
  6. A strong ‘1930’ date
  7. The edges are undamaged. The fields are undamaged,  glossy and smooth.
  8. The toning is a handsome even chocolate brown.

And while all the quality attributes of points 1 to 8 may seem very technical … it is the complete and strong central diamond, that places this coin in the extremely rare category and justifies the supreme quality level of Very Fine.

We rank this coin in the top 5 per cent of known surviving examples.

Our experiences attest to the scarcity of a 1930 Penny at this quality level. We might have access to one, maybe two Very Fine 1930 Pennies each year, such is its limited availability.

The pie chart clearly shows the extreme scarcity of this 1930 Penny (The grey area).
