Minted in Calcutta during the First World War this coin has avoided the big melt down that was the sad fate of many of its peers.
Overall it is in reasonable condition with the usual small areas of tarnish associated with a coin of this age.
Obverse is showing some wear over the crown which is also normal given that this a the high point of the coins surface.
This Australia One Penny copper coin from 1916 was minted in Calcutta at the height of the Great War.
