1922 Australia One Penny - King George V
This year of one penny pre-decimal coins were minted both in Melbourne and Perth.
This one has some edge nicks and wear on the high points. Some pearls still visable.
It has a few edge nicks but overall is pleasing to the eye as an example of this year.
A nice collection filler. Please see the pictures and judge for yourself.
