1930 Australian Penny

When it comes to collecting rare items, the 1930 Australian Penny seems to be one of the rarest you can find. A niche market already, it may be difficult to find every piece you are looking for, and this one is no exception. You best chance is through online seller eBay, where sellers from all over the world are able to list and you can get it delivered to you safely for a fee.

What Makes it Rare?

The 1930 Australian Penny is the country’s best-known, rare coin. Not only was it the last to go into the popular press-in Dansco albums of the time, but it was so commonly used in general spending at the time, that many did not keep it or maintain it in a good condition. Despite it being a difficult addition for you to track down, eBay have plenty of other similar ones you can choose from. The simple search for Australian pre-decimal coins returns an abundance of listings, with prices varying majorly.

Collector Equipment

Just having the coins is not good enough when one is dedicated to being a collector. The most important thing to keep your collected items safe is to get a coin and note albums and folders. They can come in specific themes and collections, or you can just get a generic folder or album. Protective plastic sleeves keep the coins and notes from getting damaged or fading, so you can rest assured your collection will be safe and continue to hold its mint value.


Though it may be unusual for a simple collection to have forgeries, when it comes to items that may be of significant value, such as the 1930 Australian penny, they are likely to occur. There are a few ways you can protect yourself. Purchase only from reputable establishments, get certificates, and when in doubt, have the piece/s authenticated and valued by a professional.
