This 1963 Proof Penny and Halfpenny is a perfect entry point into the Australian rare coin market.
Both coins are brilliantly matched (which is in itself a rare occurrence) a blazing, solid orange copper.
And in terms of their rarity:
- The original mintage of the 1963 Proof Penny and Halfpenny was 1100, which is in itself a small number.
- Nine out every ten 1963 pairs that we sight are assessed by us as being inferior for quality, mishandled, toned and harshly spotted thereby reducing the pool of quality examples to a truly minuscule number.
- To quantify the availability of quality examples we suggest that you would be lucky to sight one or two quality 1963 Perth proof pairs annually.
The outstanding quality of these two coins is a guarantee of their rarity. And it’s their quality and their rarity that will underpin their financial growth.
