The 1929 half penny is a comparatively scarce date when compared with the 1926, 1927 or later date half pennies and if considered in mint state , it is by no means common. The reasonably sizable mintage of approximately 2.6 million pieces makes this year readily available in circulated grades but with only 25 examples certified in mint state , the highest being an MS65RB (PCGS Population Report, 2011) , obtaining a mint state example of this coin will certainly require patience and reasonable funding. The year is usually quite well struck up due to the refined minting process at the Melbourne mint but the mass handling methods ensure the coin is usually covered in surface hairlines which averages the mint state examples down to MS63. With 7 years of potential circulation before there was any incentive to hoard this coin, few examples have survived around the XF to AU range, most examples tending to be in mint state or in lower circulated grades. The Melbourne mint also produced a proof of record strike in 1929.
