COMMENTS
We have decided that we will let the photographs - and in particular the close-up shot of the Crown - do most of the talking in our offering of this extremely rare, superb quality 1930 Penny. The pie chart in the Read More section also tells its own story and clearly shows the rarity of a coin at this quality level. The technical details of this coin are summarised as follows. The King’s Crown shows six clear and plump pearls. Also a prominent central diamond, the four sides of the diamond clearly visible so that you don’t have to struggle to see it. The reverse is classified similarly at Very Fine. This coin is three times as scarce as your average 1930 Penny. Well preserved, it obviously became a collectable early in its life.

COMMENTS
Had the craftsman that tooled out this Holey Dollar been a numismatist he would have recognised that the Spanish Silver Dollar that he was about to deface was a great numismatic rarity. The Silver Dollar was struck in 1790 and had the legend of King Charles IIII but featured the portrait of the deceased King Charles III, who died two years earlier in 1788. This Holey Dollar is referred to as a transitional Holey Dollar, struck from a silver dollar that was created during a period of transition at the Mexico Mint when the portrait of the new King had not been received. Irrespective of the issuing authority, transitional Holey Dollars are extremely rare. We note the first formal record of ownership of this Holey Dollar is Howard D Gibbs. A great collector with a keen eye for rarity, he was a former owner of the world famous Madrid Holey Dollar and the Uncirculated New South Wales Holey Dollar that we are currently offering. This Holey Dollar from the British colony of Dominica is supremely rare.

Whenever we are offered Proof Sets from the era 1955 to 1963, we always check if there is a Melbourne Mint 1959 Proof Set in the offering. It is the hardest to find in the series of Melbourne proofs, so if it is available we are excited. Moving beyond our excitement we know to carefully scrutinise the quality of the coppers in the 1959 Proof Set for they are the driving force for investment in this set and are almost impossible to find in a superior state. The majority of specimens that we see are mismatched and almost bordering on the ugly. Now take a look at this 1959 Melbourne Mint Proof Set. Superb proof silver. Perfectly matched and beautifully toned proof coppers. This set is genuinely rare and available at a great price. We hope we have given you sufficient reason to read more.

PROVENANCE
Barrie Winsor Collection
PRICE

COMMENTS
History has judged the British colony of Dominica (in the Caribbean) as being somewhat of a trail blazer in the creation of Holey Dollars and Dumps. Embarrassed by the lack of English currency, Dominica took up the practice of ‘holing’ Spanish silver dollars and adapting the mutilated coins to a local currency as early as 1760. More than half a century earlier than the penal colony of New South Wales. This extremely rare 1798 Dominica Holey Dollar was created from a 1797 Mexico Mint Silver Dollar that was pierced with a hole etched by 15 notches. The Dump, also issued in 1798, was the centre plug that fell out of the hole during the striking of the Holey Dollar and features 15 notches, a well-defined script ’D’ and a small star within the ‘D’. Both the Holey Dollar and the Dump show minimal circulation and are extremely well preserved.

COMMENTS
This is an extremely rare Holey Dollar, struck by Canada’s Prince Edward Island, and is one of seventy nine (79) known specimens. While Governor Lachlan Macquarie was coining his Holey Dollars and Dumps in Sydney, a similar scheme was unfolding across the other side of the globe in Prince Edward Island, Canada. In 1813 the Island’s Lieutenant Governor, Charles Douglass Smith, created an internal currency for the British colony by cutting and over stamping 1000 Spanish Silver Dollars. The silver dollars were holed and over stamped with a circle with ten teeth like projections positioned (partially) on the King’s forehead.

COMMENTS
The Bank of Victoria was founded by Dr Thomas Black, a physician from the Richmond area of Melbourne. The bank was registered in Victoria in 1852 and commenced operations in January 1853 as the Bank of Victoria Limited. By 1887 the bank had 65 branches, all in Victoria. The Bank of Victoria amalgamated with the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney Limited in 1927 and eventually became part of the National Bank of Australia in 1981. Archived for more than a century by London engravers and printers Bradbury & Wilkinson, this high denomination colonial note retains its original characteristics and colour unaffected by the passing of time.

The London Chartered Bank was formed in London in 1852 and one year later established branches in both Melbourne and Sydney. In 1882, the bank opened a Brisbane branch. During the financial crisis of 1893 this revered establishment was forced to suspend its payments but only for four months, later re-opening its doors. The London Chartered Bank of Australia lives on through its subsequent mergers. In 1921 the bank merged with the English, Scottish and Australian Bank (ES&A) which in turn amalgamated with the ANZ in 1970. The note has an original crispness in its paper and vibrant colours that defies time.

A Ten Pounds note was well beyond the reach of most of the colony’s residents. In 1888, a farm hand in the colony was earning 13/- per week. This colonial Ten Pounds would have represented nearly four months wages.

The 1921 Square Pennies are the most accessible - and affordable – coins in the entire Square Penny series. There is no suggestion here that the 1921 Square Pennies are available at the drop of a hat. Perhaps twenty Type 11 Square Pennies are known, which for the buyer translates into a waiting time of up to a year for an example to become available. (Compare that to the 1930 Penny where 1500 to 2000 are believed to exist.)

The 1855 Sydney Mint Half Sovereign has a unique status as Australia’s very first half sovereign - struck at the nation’s first mint, the Sydney Mint. The coin is amazingly rare. Less than fifty examples are known today and let’s be clear on this point. That’s not fifty at each quality level. That’s fifty across all quality levels. (To put this figure into perspective, the industry estimates that 1500 to 2000 1930 Pennies, across all quality levels, are known.)

This coin is of the highest rarity and for three very basic reasons. The first is the inclusion of the word ‘proof’ in its description which indicates that this coin was struck as a collector piece – and was not struck for circulation. The second is the date ‘1927’. In terms of proof pennies, ‘1927’ is the rare one. The third defining aspect of this coin is its quality. It is one of the very best with much original copper brilliance.

This 1897 Proof Half Sovereign is a prized collector piece. We have traced its provenance back to the year in which it was struck when it became the property of wealthy London businessman John G Murdoch. History records that Murdoch, an avid collector, financed the striking of the proof half sovereigns in 1897 at the Melbourne Mint. Three were believed struck, each coin featuring the Veiled Head portrait of Queen Victoria. This coin, is to our knowledge, the only example out of the original mintage to be sighted on the open market.

This 1868 Sydney Mint Sovereign is a remarkable piece of colonial history. The coin was issued at Australia’s first mint, the Sydney Mint nearly 150 years ago yet it looks like it was plucked off the production line yesterday. The design imparted a uniquely Australian flavour into the nation’s first official gold coinage, a young Queen Victoria wearing a sprig of native banksia in her hair. And the word AUSTRALIA appearing on the reverse. And while this may seem trite … ‘Australia’ only appeared on Australia’s sovereigns between 1855 and 1870 making the Sydney Mint design one of the most innovative and important in Australia’s sovereign history.

When Melbourne journalist Anthony Black asked Coinworks to list ten coin rarities that were priced below $ 10,000 - and were destined for growth – the Perth Mint proofs struck between 1957 and 1963 were high on our list. Coins such as this 1957, 1958 and 1959 Perth Mint Proof Penny would have been amongst them. And while we are offering the coins as a trio, you can take your pick and acquire just one, two or all three of the coins. The price of each coin is $ 3500. Or $ 9500 for the trio.

That historians have traced a business transaction involving the 1823 Macintosh & Degraves Shilling back to 1848 is testimony to the rarity and importance of this iconic piece of Australiana. The transaction was a purchase for the esteemed London National Collection. The history associated with this piece is absolutely amazing and is a ‘must read’.
