Fair dinkum, good group and a nice selection mostly VF.


Just my 1943!

As this shot shows, collecting all varieties of the 1942/44 Australian coins is hard work!

I read somewhere that American coins were minted in .900 rather .925 silver though, or am I barking up the wrong tree. They did this for Fiji too, and this was a boost as Fijian coins were typically only .500 silver at the time!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

I need all the Florins to complete my set. :(

1943 - AU


1944 - Bottom right - AU/UNC

My opinion being the Americans did a good job
