Scarce and magnificent.

This coin has a wonderful pantina and for the serious collector a very nice addition.

Key date year with coins from this era being minted in both Melbourne and Sydney.

1921 saw the election of Edith Cowan as first female parliamentarian in Australia which is why she appears on the Australian Fifty Dollar polymer banknote. This One Penny coin is from that year in Australian History.

Fantastic condition for its age.
