A New 120mm Diameter coin struck to Commemorate the Australia’s first official coin- The Revered 1797 Cartwheel Penny.

The 1797 Cartwheel Penny, universally revered in numismatic circles, laid the foundation of a true currency in Australia. Incredibly rare – only two original Proof pennies are known to exist today – the importance of the 1797 Cartwheel Penny, to Australia and coin collectors, cannot be overstated. To commemorate this vital part of our history, a majestic coin has been released and minted in pure copper in honour of the history-changing, nation-defining metal. "The 1797 Cartwheel Penny Replica" is available only from The Bradford Exchange.

The "1797 Cartwheel Penny Replica" has been struck in an impressive 120mm size. Coins of such proportions are struck to mark occasions of great importance. The obverse of the replica features a bust of King George III in a richly detailed composition made all the more fascinating in this new oversize edition. The incused engraving GEORGIUS III•D•G•REX is now clearly legible and forms part of the raised "cartwheel" border which defined the original penny. The reverse is equally fascinating with the goddess Britannia holding a trident and olive branch as she views a sailing ship on the horizon. Below the Union Jack shield is the print mark of the Soho Mint. Minted to Proof standards, the highest possible quality, the replica is entirely cast in pure copper in honour of the original penny’s metallic composition. Weighing over nine times the weight of the original , the "1797 Cartwheel Penny Replica" is truly a coin that is without parallel.

This is a coin of remarkable detail, quality and size, and now you have the opportunity to own one, but strong demand is expected so don't wait.
