1933 Australian Penny

Minted in Melbourne, Australia.


The obverse, (heads), has 177 outer rim denticals (London obverse), and features the image of Australia's, (England's), Monarch at the time, King George V facing to the left, with the legend reading the Latin "GEORGIVS V D.G. BRITT: OMN: REX F.D. IND: IMP:"

Emperor of India"


The reverse, (tails), has 177 outer rim denticals, with the words "ONE PENNY" in the center, scrolls above and below wording, all surrounded by a ring of inner denticals.     The 1933 penny has no mint mark.


Outer rim legend reads "COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA", with the date at the bottom, known as the 'COA' reverse.

1933/32 Overdate variety

A scarce variety of the 1933 penny exists known as the '1933-32 overdate' penny.

This overdate variety has occurred due to some of the dies used in the manufacture of 1932 pennies being reworked and used again in the manufacture of some 1933 pennies.

The '2' in 1932 was not completely removed in some dies prior to the last '3' being reworked, resulting in part of the 2 showing through underneath the last '3' in coins minted using these dies.

You should be able to see this anomaly clearly under magnification on all 1933-32 overdate pennies, although some are more subtle than others.
