The 1937 Crown Proof FDC is unquestionably a rarity of world standing. Struck to the finest quality – and in the tiniest numbers – the entire mintage of this imposing Australian rarity comprised only 100 coins.
Measuring an imposing 38.50mm, the 1937 Crown was issued to commemorate the coronation of King George VI in 1937. Along with the standard circulation issue, the Melbourne Mint also struck 100 examples in Proof FDC quality. Although the mintage of 100 is obviously tiny, the number still in existence is much less than that. The number remaining in perfect FDC quality is infinitesimal. Notable for the exceptional clarity of detail in the designs, the single example of the 1937 Crown Proof FDC we have available is in an absolutely spellbinding state of preservation. A landmark opportunity, this is your chance to become one of the privileged few to own a truly prestigious Australian predecimal rarity.
