COIN REVEAL: 1937 Australian Crown - Silver Coin

Today's coin is the 1937 Australian Crown. This is my first ever Australian Crown for my stack.

I have always loved these Crowns, but as I like to buy my precious metals as close to spot as practicable it has always been challenging to find Crowns that do not have a numismatic value attached to them. Crowns are very sort after in Australia.

I am stoked to have my first one. It definitely won't be my last one.

I got this Crown as part of a larger purchase I made recently. I was endeavouring to negotiate the deal, and as a sweetener the coin dealer offered to throw in the Crown at no extra cost... BONUS!

Coin Information:

  • Australian Crowns came into circulation in 1937.
  • They were only minted in 1937 and 1938.
  • In terms of size and weight the coin dimensions to the British Crown.
  • the Australian Crown had the same value as five shillings.
  • The coin has a weight of 28.28g, just under a Troy Ounce.
  • The diameter is 38.5 mm with a Milled edge.
  • The metal composition is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, commonly known as sterling silver.

This is one of my all time favourite designs for a circulated coin. They look and feel amazing. The problem is now that I have one, I might have the bug which means I ne buying more. 🤔

What circulation coin designs do you absolutely love?

OOOoohhhhhh... .925! Sweet. I love the look of .925 coins. I bet that high relief design looks so much better in person.
