COMMENTS
This 1956 Perth Mint Proof Penny is a blazing, solid orange copper proof with impeccable surfaces. It presents quality that is impossible to improve upon; standards that set the benchmark for all other examples. No surprise therefore that at the Perth Money Expo earlier this year and again in Melbourne in August it was one of the feature coins of our display. We are a company that prides itself on offering premium quality rarities, across all dollar levels, and this coin fulfils our ideals in every regard.

Of the 14 coins that make up the series struck by the Perth Mint between 1955 and 1963, the 1956 Proof Penny is a key date. It is excruciatingly scarce and in top quality, it is the absolute key coin. The hardest to find.

The reason is simply the mintage. The Perth Mint struck a meagre 417 coins. (Compare this let’s say to the 1957 Perth Mint Proof Penny that was struck in a mintage of 1112 coins.)

The proof coins struck between 1955 and 1963 are a perfect entry point into the Australian rare coin market. Limited edition collector coins at very affordable prices. They also come at the top of our list of recommendations for clients looking to tuck something away for their children or grandchildren.

This coin is a stand-out rarity and a stand-alone investment piece.
