COMMENTS
This 1952 Proof Penny is one of the finest Perth Mint proofs you will ever see, of the date 1952 or any other date for that matter. The quality is exceptional. We first sighted the coin in 2013, part of a larger collection owned by a Melbourne collector, put together in the 1980s. While we are not at liberty to identify the owner, we can say that he was an expert on Australia’s proof coinage and the author of many articles on the same. That this coin was part of his prized collection comes as no surprise. Great collectors tend to only ever own great coins. Technical shots are provided.

1952 Perth Mint Proof Penny. Reverse.

The respect shown for Australia's proof coinage and what it represents was never more evident than with our recent sale of the Proof 1930 Penny for $1.15 million.

This 1952 Perth Mint Proof Penny is a prize. The coin has brilliant glossy surfaces, is well struck and has superb fields. Note the detail in the hair on the obverse and the sharpness of the strike on the reverse.

Irrespective of their quality, Perth Mint copper proofs are genuinely rare. In terms of the 1952 Proof Penny, only ten have been sighted on the open market over the last 40 years.

And if you are hunting one of the very best (such as this coin) you might be waiting many years before a comparable piece becomes available.

1952 Perth Mint Proof Penny. Obverse.

As a company we appreciate top quality. But more than top quality we love to see the words ‘exceptional quality’ ascribed to a piece. It sets the coin apart from all others. And this coin is exceptional for quality.

This coin is history. This coin also is refreshingly current for the Perth Mint is to this day, a leading coin producer. A fact that certainly heightens the interest and demand for its earlier pre-decimal proof issues.

Superb quality Perth Proof coins are always sought after.
