Australia 1884 Melbourne Half Sovereign PCGS XF45 (Type 5/3)

This date is definitely a sleeper. While production was 48,000 pieces – similar to 1882 Sydney – I cannot find 1884 anywhere near so easily, even at lower grades. Perhaps one of the reasons there’s only 7 coins graded finer than this one. Check the PCGS page for yourself in the link below:
