1913 Australia Half Penny - King George V

From the 3rd year of production.

A very nice example of this year.

The coin has a very nice red gold pantina which we have not been able to properly capture here digitally.

The pantina itself keeps reflecting like rust but it does not look so under normal light.

We are working to try and fix the imaging on this coin to display its true beauty.
