This 1957 Perth Mint Proof Penny is superb for quality, a solid blazing orange in colour.

 Its outstanding quality is a guarantee of its rarity. You would be lucky to sight one or two similar calibre 1957 Perth Proof Pennies at auction annually. And it’s the quality and the rarity of these coins that underpin their financial growth.

This 1957 Perth Mint Proof Penny comes highly recommended and for the following reasons.

  • In 1955 the Australian Government sanctioned the issue of limited edition collector coins by both the Melbourne and Perth Mints. The series ran from 1955 to 1963 and is today one of Australia’s most popular collector series.
  • The coin is priced at a level that will attract inordinate buyer interest and that will in our view embrace capital growth.
  • The coin is a superb quality proof and at this quality level is exceedingly scarce.
