Extremely Rare 1923 Australia Half Penny Coin. In 1922 the Sydney Branch of the Royal Mint produced sixpence and halfpenny coins for the Commonwealth using dies supplied from Melbourne.
In 1923 the future of the Sydney Mint looked very uncertain (it was eventually closed in 1926) but they did strike 1,113,600 halfpenny pieces that year. However, no 1923 dated dies had been supplied; the entire issue of this denomination in 1923 bore the date 1922. In July 1923 the Melbourne Mint received an order for one thousand pound of halfpenny coins (480,000 coins) and in September three pairs of dies dated 1923 for the halfpenny denomination were issued from the workshop. The other two dies cracked early in production, so the coin is quite rare.Half Penny 1923 - Circulation strike. Australia Post - MyPost Business (Regular or Express).
