In the following images there is a Australia 1936 Half Penny coin. It is made from Bronze and features on its front a crowned King George V of the British Empire who was in power from 1910 until 1936. One his quotes was: “After I am dead, the boy will ruin himself in twelve months.” He was referring to his son who indeed only had a short time in power though abdicated for marriage reasons. On the reverse side of this Australia 1936 Half Penny are the words: Commonwealth of Australia plus the year: 1936 and denomination of One Half Penny. There were 2.562 million of Australia 1936 Half Pennies made in this particular year. This example that we own is in almost uncirculated grade and for the price email us at email@example.com.
Australia first started making the half penny in the year 1911. It ceased being produced in 1964 before decimalization was implemented. They are quite a nice addition to a world coin collection of coins and stand out in the cents category because of their large size.
