Austrian coin


Recommended Posts

The 1937 Australian 3 pence was a pattern coin with normal productions beginning dated 1938.  There are 15 patterns with only one known completely struck with the effigy of George VI.  The other 14 coins had the effigy of Edward VIII with the effigy machined off.

I would be suspect that your coin may be counterfeit.  I am curious, what kind of edge does it have, and what are the weights and dimensions.  And what kind of metal does it seem to be?  Is it magnetic?  Is there a seam around the edge?

I will also say that the 7 does not appear to be the proper typeface, again making the coin suspicious of being counterfeit.
