Australia 1961 Shilling Bar in the Wool Variety


Coin Type:Australia Shilling
Metal:50% silver, 40% copper, 5% zinc, 5% nickel
Obverse:Elizabeth II (Mary Gillick)
Reverse:Ramshead (George Kruger Gray)

1961 shilling with bar in the wool reverse variety. There have been quite a few variations of this bar found on 1961 shillings. Peter Andrews suggests this is a “look-alike” and not a true example (as pictured in Renniks catalogue) but I feel still very collectable as seen.
