A full set of extra fine1936 pre-decimal coins.
The coins are packed in a 60’s plastic presentation folder which was issued by BP Australia at that time. All coins are in great condition.
The outer sleeve of the folder is a little dirty with age but that is to be expected.
We have not come across coins from this early repackaged into a folder,
A really great way to score a full set from this year of pre-decimal currency.
Priced to sell and a great addition to any collection looking for this year of production.
All coins in the set are the standard release 1936 coins
Some are showing aging and all coins have never been taken out of the plastic in our ownership.
Approximate condition is about Extra Fine
