Rare Penny Cab Merlot

The 1930 Penny is the most famous and rare edition of all Australian coins. Very few of these heritage items were ever made making the coin itself a true Australian treasure and a rare find. During the 1950’s and 60’s when pennies were still in circulation, children would often be seen huddling amongst themselves in the schoolyard, sifting through their lunch money hoping to turn up the rare copper coin.

The search for the exclusive 1930 Penny continues today and remains the most sought after Australian coin icon.
