COMMENTS
The Melbourne Centenary Florin was issued to celebrate one hundred years of European settlement at Victoria’s two permanent outposts, Portland Bay in 1934 and Melbourne in 1935. It is rare in any condition. Struck to specimen quality it is rarer again. The reverse design of a naked male bearing a flaming torch atop a horse created much controversy at the time. The obverse portrait of George V is unique on Australian coins.
