1922 Australia Sixpence - King George V
This was a fairly low mintage year and although this coin is well worn it is still a great collection filler.
It was put into general circulation in the same year as Neville Bonner, Australia's first Indigenous federal MP was born.
Please see the available pictures.
Great price at this time.
