Description

New Guinea, George V (1910-1936), copper-nickel Halfpenny, 1929, Melbourne, crown over sceptres and tooth necklace. Rev. Stylised cross, engraver George Kruger Gray, (KM 1). In NGC holder graded MS64, proof-like, very rare.

Entire mintage of this type was returned to Melbourne Mint which later sold 400 pieces in sets with penny (KM 2). The balance of mintage was destroyed. As a result of mass melting, these are more often offered in proof condition than in the circulation strike format found here.
