This 1930 Penny will make owning an example of Australia’s most famous copper rarity a reality for just one buyer.

The rarity and significance of the 1930 Penny touches all of its owners. We speak from experience. We have seen it first hand with our clients, the sheer excitement of acquiring Australia’s famous copper rarity. You can hear it in their voice. You can see it in their face.

The pride and joy of owning a 1930 Penny is indefinable and for many collectors it is the ultimate dream.

This 1930 Penny is beautifully balanced. It is a coin that you would be proud to show your family and friends and is a truly attractive example of Australia’s copper rarity. Furthermore it is offered at a price that won’t break the bank.

Finding a nice 1930 Penny priced below the $20,000 level is an almost impossible task.

We are regularly searching out 1930 Pennies, both from private buyers and auction houses. The difficulty here is that the majority of coins that we see do not meet our quality criteria.

This coin passes our test with flying colours.

As an added bonus: Coinworks are giving away a FREE 1923 Halfpenny with all purchases throughout the month of June.

The 1930 Penny is a national icon and its star status has made it one of Australia’s most valuable coins.

Officially the 1930 Penny was never struck and a review of minting records at the Melbourne Mint confirms the same. However, as we all know, a small number of 1930 Pennies were accidentally struck and released into circulation.

The accidental minting of the 1930 Penny was not discovered until the 1940s.

That the coins underwent at least a decade of circulation before they were discovered means that most of the surviving examples are knocked around, with obvious defects such as edge bumps and gouges.

Not so with this 1930 Penny.
