With rarity the natural partner to potential, it will come as no surprise that the 1923 Halfpenny in better grade has soared in value over the years. In 1999, a Very Fine example was valued at AUD$1,650. With increased competition for the few high-grade examples on the market leading to an escalating market value, a 1923 Halfpenny in Very Fine is now valued at AUD$4,500!

One of the most important acquisitions that the collector can make, and also sought after by those keen to diversify their portfolios, the chance to secure the 1923 Halfpenny in premium grade about Very Fine to Very Fine quality demands serious consideration.

  • Australia's rarest halfpenny issue - seldom offered in such nice condition as here
  • With a VF 1923 1/2d valued at A$4,500, this is a super bargain at A$2,950 for an example in aVF-VF
  • Obverse features six pearls and near complete centre diamond, with reverse in strong VF

A great Australian rarity, and yet still available at a reasonable price, the 1923 Halfpenny is the key to the 1911-64 1/2d Series.

Very rare - especially in the 'better-than-usually-seen' quality presented here - the mintage of this iconic Roaring 20s issue is approximately 15,000, with the number of existing examples inevitably well below that meagre figure. It stands to reason that, with so few examples in existence, this crucial predecimal date would be scarce across all grades - and rare in better quality.
