1914 Australia One Shilling - King George V

A nice coin from this year.

Mintage was quite high so values are not as steep either.

Still a great coin to fill that year in your collection.

Minor deterioration on the coins Reverse which is what precludes this coin from having a far higher grading.

World War I had begun in this year and this coin made it through to today.
