In this entry we see a 1915 Australia Shilling Coin.  On the front if it has  King George V of the United Kingdom and British Empire who in this year was badly injured when falling from a horse.  This coin is made of sterling silver and has on its reverse a H mint mark which designates that it was struck in Heaton in London UK.  There were 500,000 of these coins minted in Heaton in the year 1915.

Our opinion of the grade of this 1915 Australia Shilling Coin is very good.

Australia Sixpence 1942

The Australia Sixpence coin was a coin that was made between the year of 1910 and 1963.  There were a few years during that time frame where it was not struck.   Once Australia decided to decimalise its currency the sixpence became obsolete.  Initially and up until the year 1945 they were sterling silver (.925 fine) and then from 1946 until their end they were 50% silver.  So below you’ll see our Australia Sixpence 1942 which is sterling silver and the other 7.5% is copper.  This coin has a weight of 2.83 grams.  There is a D mint mark on the back of it signifying that it was made in Denver, Colorado USA where 12 million were struck that year.  Our Australia Sixpence 1942 has some beautiful mint luster to it still.

Australia 1936 Half Penny

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

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.

1943 Silver Australian Shilling Coin

Here we have in the pictures below a 1943 Australian 1 Shilling Silver coin.  It has an image of George the VI who was the last king to reign over the British Empire.  This coin’s silver weight is .1680 ounces (5.65 grams)of the precious metal.  On the back side of it is an image of a ram as well as the denomination and year inside of 2 stars.  There were 16 million of these made and this appears to have been struck in the Sydney mint.  This one in particular that we have is in fine condition and is a decent coin to have in one’s collection especially for those that like silver coins like myself.

The Australian shilling had a nice long production of 50 plus years of being struck.   Its initiation was in 1910 and it was  discontinued in 1966 when the currency there was put into decimal form.  A shilling coin was called or known by its nickname of deener.
