Thanks one and all, I don't think it will be worth the 20 grand like the one in the downies link, as it is in a bit better condition than my one. But being very rare I hope it might be up there somewhere around 10 grand, we will see when I take it to have it valued.

Yes it is 100% the real deal

Detrack what can I say, this was all my doing. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

The prices of 20 grand are far fetched they are for VF or better coins which sadly that coin isn't damage to the rim and significant wear puts it in the lower price range of coins of the type maybe 5000 on a good day but saying that EXELLENT FIND! If it was a cracked die variation even in that condition it would be worth more.

These coins never realy got into circulation to any great degree coz they contained a higher gold value than their face value. At 5 DWT = 8.8 g approx, it is a nice and very important coin in Australian history. They are extremely rare in any condition.
Only 40 or 50 type I pounds were struck (faulty with crack) and 25,000 type II. As far back as 1989 they could bring up to $30,000 for type I and $8000 for type II depending on condition.(Convert that to todays value) Very Happy
 
Up until a few years ago only a few hundred of these coins existed in private collections.
Hang on to that one mate.

I got a Holey dollar and Dump on the weekend Q12 .............To bad it was a Re Run Sad

G'day Adrian

Your giving it a lot of extra gold as a bonus ay.

At 15 DWT = 23.3 g approx, it is a heavy gold coin.
It is really 5 dwt & 15 grains which is 8.81 grams, compared to the later gold sovereigns which were 7.988g and the Adelaide Pound has a slightly larger dia as well at 23mm compared to the later ones at 21.5mm

And hang onto it I will Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Regardless of its condition or value,ITS A BLOODY GREAT FIND !

I have the `Rennicks Australian Coin & Banknote values` book open in front of me as I type.
The coin in Dave`s picture is the type 2. The type 1 had the die crack and only 50 were produced.
The coins specifications:
22 Carats 916.6 fine
Gold 91.67% Silver 8.33%
Weight 8.81 grms
