Mintage was 36,454,000 - it was the only 50 cent coin in Australia for the first few years of decimal currency.
This particular coin shows some cartwheel lustre - impaired on the obverse, but still there. Generally it is quite clean with sharp design details and no heavy contact marks at all. The rims both sides are in good condition.
The bodies of the emu and kangaroo are clear, however close inspection (3x magnification) reveals light rub evenly distributed over the highest parts of the design both sides - there is scuffing over the portrait on the obverse.
The obverse field shows light contact marks evenly distributed throughout and a bag mark near the "RA" of "AUSTRALIA".
Overall there is just too much wear to really put the coin above the XF range, even though it presents really well in hand.
The coin in the photos is the coin you will receive.
Please note that coin grading is a subjective area.
I am not a professional coin grader and have indicated my opinion only.
The coin is in the condition in which I received it and I have not cleaned or altered it.
