Looking through my dollar coin albums I was wondering why such a sorry looking coin as this would be in it amongst the rest which are mostly aUNC/UNC+. A quick perusal of the obverse reminded me why.

Strange that the most valuable coin in my collection is also in the worst condition. Actually looks a lot better in the scan than it does in hand.

2000 $1/10 cent mule. Numista reckons estimated mintage is 5000 coins.



Any mule is a good mule, but this is certainly one of the poorest I've seen posted on this forum.

2018 centenary of the Armistice $2. Mintage 1.6 million.

Coloured coins usually aren't left in circulation long enough for them to get this tatty.

That coin looks familiar... At least very similar to the one I dug up while detecting a few years ago. I swapped it for a shiny $2 coin via the work snack vending machine so I guess it ended up back in circulation.

Tatty yes, but if you look at those coloured $2 coins, there is very little actual wear on them.

I would say they are still AU on a bad day.

Even that 21 year old mule would be no worse than a high VF.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Not exactly really bad but well below average for its type. This was from that group of bullion Canberra's I brought.




Most of them are at least gVF, to get one in barely Fine is amazing. I seem to love high grade coins in mid/low grades.

Its going with my worn 1949 Crown (Page 2).

Has anyone else got a worn Canberra florin, because when its this worn, you know its been in circulation for a while

Here's my worn pair of Australian 1932 Florins.

A slightly rarer date with a mintage of 188k.

A shame to see a florin from this date as worn as these ones!

They obviously circulated for quite a while. It's kind of nice to see actually - these days low mintage coins don't stay in circulation very long!

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if these ones were circulated right up until they got replaced by dollars & cents!

These are definitely my worst 1932 florins I own.

Any 1932 Florin is worth owning despite its condition!
Unless of course its a fake, your two look good to me and many other collectors who either don't have one or appreciate rare coins.

Apart from the Victoria centenary Florin, 1932 is the rarest date of Australian Florin.

Your first coin is decent and average for the era, most pre 1935 Aussie Florins are worn flat and quality coins cost hundreds.

The first coin is a high Very Good and some would even say Fine - I would say its around $400 or so.

The second coin is definitely more worn, probably between Good and Very Good (Good+), but to many people wanting one, still definitely acceptable, its details are visible and you can make out its 1932. I think someone would easily offer $100 - $175 for it.

My ONLY 1932 Florin is only slightly nicer than your "first" worst coin. I would love to see your 1932 Florins that you don't consider your "worst".

I'd be more than happy if they were my worst '32 florins!
