Look at this sexy beauty I got a few days ago!

A shiny silver coin from Australia from the 1966, featuring on the front side a kangaroo and a big ass chicken hugging the Australian coat of arms:

On the backside, the old hug of England 🤗

This is quite a heavy coin btw, 13.28 g of 80% silver and 20% copper.. Not bad!

Not surprisingly, the coin was quickly replaced in 1969 by a coin made from Copper-nickel, since it wasn't long before its silver value exceeded the face value of 50 cents.

In case you wonder, I paid for it 10 euros, yeah a big premium but I like it!

In other news, I finally got my latest order from @goldrooster. Courrier was a bit slow this time but it was worth it!

That coin is in great shape. Nice addition. That’s also a pretty healthy buy from my fellow stacking buddy goldrooster. Cheers 🍺

Nice pickup!

I stack these bad boys on the cheap every chance I get.

So while Aus officially changed to the current 50c design in 1969, they actually only made the round silver ones in 1966.

So that means there are no 1967 or 1968 dated 50c coins in circulation.

Fun fact for you ;)

Any other cool silver Australian coins you stack or know they exist?

A lot of the earlier pre-decimal Australian coins are silver.

My personal favourites to stack are 'Florins'

In terms of their silver content, keep the following in mind:

Florins minted from 1910 to 1945 were produced with a .925 sterling silver content, weighing 11.31 grams (0.3636 troy ounces) with an actual silver weight (ASW) of 10.46 grams (0.3363 ozt). Florins minted from 1946 to 1963 were produced with a .500 silver content (50% silver), weighing 11.31 grams with an ASW of 5.65 g (0.1818 ozt).

But the Aussie silver coin I reckon you'll really love is the 'Crown'.

They are big, thick mofos that were only minted in 1937 and 1938.

Check out the bad boy on the right:

I always just tick the show completed listings box on eBay to check. Seems $40-$50 AUD including postage for the cheapest.

I'll let you do the conversion to Euros, but certainly not crazy expensive for how cool they look :)

It is a fake, it is the wrong shape for a 50c piece!!

Scam!

It's interesting seeing such a young queen. If you get coins throughout the years, you will see her age.

Yeah she looks old and wrinkly on my 2021-2022 coins

How much does a silver coin cost?

By the way the coin is cool but I have seen better in your collection

1

Depends on to many factors to give a price. Weight, size, taxes, rarity, condition etc!

You need a pirate booty box to store all that silver.

Hahaha you know it's an original coin when instead of having guns it has a kangaroo and a chicken hahaha.
By the way, who is your coin dealer? He has very good options.
