One of the nicest reverse coin designs ever, and the first for George Kruger Gray, who went on to be the most prolific coin designer for the British Empire, and it's Colonies.
That means a huge number of designs on coins for the British empire, that went into circulation.
In this case, look for 'K' and the 'G' in the scrolls below the date.

This coin is in commonly seen grade for this commemorative. It was struck for the opening of the Australian Parliament building in Canberra, in 1927. 2 million were struck, but as Australia's first commemorative coin, most were taken out of circulation as keepsakes, and so are never found in heavily circulated condition.

Americans talk about FSB's and FBL's.
In this case, look for three full step lines at the top of the pathway at the entrance of the building. Full 'Three steppers' are quite scarce. The coin was slightly dished at this point, due to the raised detail of the King's effigy directly on the opposite side of the coin.
I have even seen proofs not fully struck up in this area.

I would think that a 'three stepper' in very high MS grade would be even rarer, and thus more valuable than than a proof, which are almost as scarce as hen's teeth, anyway.

This coin VF (AU-50 Sheldon).

i agree with you there, that the 3 steppers are actually very hard to find in good condition however most people do not care about the fact that its going to be 3 steps -_- .

AU 54 however the surface hairlines are a worry, nice luster tho.

I would agree with an AU grade (AU58)...reverse better than obverse.

I am going to say UNC - Can't see any wear and a stunning coin.

VF is extremely low for this issue and how VF can translate to American AU?
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

There is wear on the maces so not Unc, plus the obverse and reverse has scratches in the field that might be from either circulation or from cleaning.
