Description

This coin with "I" mint mark minted in Melbourne.

This year at the end of World War One had an extremely low mintage of only 1.2 million coins due to the shortage of metals.

This meant that only about a quarter of a normal years production was made. 

A very nice example and key date coin and a great addition to any collection.

Please judge for yourself the worth of this magnificent coin.
