close up diamond 1930 penny

Close up shot of the crown showing an almost complete central diamond and six plump pearls.

The 1930 Penny is legendary and its star status has made it one of Australia's most valuable rare coins.

The prime rule in selecting a 1930 Penny is to pick a coin that is visually very attractive. Acquire a piece that has an heirloom feel about it.

The 1930 Penny that we have for sale fits that profile in every respect and is as per the photographs.

The aesthetics, how the 1930 Penny looks to the naked eye, is an important part of the selection process.

The reason is simply that the 1930 Penny was minted by accident and no one knew of its existence until at least ten years after it was issued.

Which means that the coins were used, with the majority well used, before collectors discovered its very being, enduring the rigours of being handled, mishandled, dropped, scratched and rattling around in change. 

Which is why Coinworks applies strict protocols in the selection of 1930 Pennies to offer our clients.

We reject coins that have massive edge knocks or gouges. And we don't like coins that have significant scratches. Which is why we always suggest you buy a 1930 Penny "that you would be proud to show your family and friends". 

This particular 1930 Penny fits that profile in every respect.

It is a truly attractive example of Australia’s most famous copper rarity and must have become a prized collectable very soon into its life for it shows minimal effects of having been used.

This 1930 Penny will be presented in a handsome black presentation case, with accompanying photographs and Certificate.
