Australia 1919 Melbourne plain penny PCGS MS63

It’s been a pleasure and challenge bringing my first collection of Australian pennies to market after purchasing them raw in Darwin and sending them to PCGS. Some coins were a disappointment.

Not this 1919 Melbourne plain penny however. It is ONE of NINE (cue Lord of the Rings) and there are only two coins in brown better than this.

I’ve found a MS64RB (red brown) example for $850 – double the cost of this example. Exceptional value to start or complete your high grade collection of various mint marks produced during 1919 and 1920.

The certificate for this coin can be found at PCGS:
