A delightful mint-state example.

This is currently the finest known example of this date graded so far by PCGS.

The Reserve Bank of Australia auction in 2005 contained two mint state examples of this date and variety - both of those coins sold for $27,430 nett.

The Quartermaster Collection contained an example graded Choice Uncirculated, it sold for $43,255.

Sharply stuck and with impeccable surfaces, this coin has been confirmed as having original surfaces by PCGS, and compares very favourably to the three finest examples of this coin sighted in the past decade.
