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!
- 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?
