A solid example of one of Australia’s most important Commonwealth coins.

The 1914 Heaton florin is unequivocally one of Australia’s most important Commonwealth coins.

It is a tough coin to locate in any condition, and is incredibly rare in superior condition.

Since 1853, the Royal Mint had regularly outsourced production of British and colonial coins to the Heaton Mint, specifically during times of high demand for coinage.

The Royal Mint had been at close to full capacity in the early 1900’s fulfilling their responsibility to manufacture coinage or Britain and the colonies, and additional work aimed at supporting the Allied effort in World War I increased the Royal Mint’s workload further.

Demand for British coinage rose in 1914, so the Heaton Mint was tasked with producing a portion of Australia’s florins and halfpennies, as well as a portion of Australia’s florins, shillings, pennies and halfpennies for 1915.

The 1914 Heaton florin is the rarest of all of the coins that the Heaton Mint struck for Australia, and is a respected coin in any condition.

It has an even satin patina, and has great eye appeal in the hand.

It remains a solid example of one of Australia’s most important Commonwealth coins.
