This coins is as rough as they come, however has been Independently authenticated as a genuine example.

1930 pennies are pretty much as hard to come by in poor condition as they are in superior condition - the vast majority of those coins that still exist grade between Fine and good Fine, and in the current market, sell for anwyhere between $15,000 and $25,000 (with the exact value dependent on the quality the coin is in).

This particular coin really is as rough as they come - it hasn’t suffered any post-minting damage per se, however there’s no doubt it has been heat-affected at some stage. Check our images and you’ll see that there’s a bit of black crust either side, and the surfaces have a truly crazed appearance.

Which is a real shame, as the coin shows plenty of detail - most of the centre diamond is still visible.

My research into the value of 1930 pennies shows me that the last time a 1930 penny sold for less than $10,000 was way back in March 2015 - that coin had some decent edge bumps and was bent!

This coin doesn’t have great surfaces obviously, however apart from that it is a pretty decent example!

If you’ve been looking to add this Australian rarity to your coin collection and want to addd it to your collection for as low a cost as possible, this is the coin for you.
