1952-A Half Penny

George VI


The 1952-A Half Penny was struck at the Perth mint with a total mintage of 1,831,680. The reverse of this piece features George Kruger Gray's iconic Kangaroo design and the obverse features Thomas H. Paget's effigy of HM King George VI. A small dot mint-mark is located on the reverse to the right of 'AUSTRALIA' (see image below). Despite the relatively low mintage the type is quite accessible into mint-state although it becomes relatively scarce and valuable at MS63.
