The Madrid Holey Dollar will suit an investor who demands to own a unique piece of Australian history for it is the only privately held Holey Dollar to be struck from a Silver Dollar that was minted in Spain and features the Crowned M mintmark. Furthermore, it is one of the very finest of the 300 known Holey Dollars. The coin was ascribed by Spink Auctions in 1988 as “Australia’s most desirable Holey Dollar”.
