For serious coin collectors, one elusive treasure holds them spellbound. One name involves a lifetime of searching; an impossible quest. For many, it is their most desired coin: the Holey Dollar. Considered Australia’s first coin, it is an example of a numismatic rarity that is legendary around the world. With less than 300 known to exist and with some fetching six figure prices at auction, it is tantalisingly out of reach for most people. Until today.

The history of the Holey Dollar in the early days of the New South Wales colony is a fascinating one, which you’ll enjoy reading on the back page. Its legend finds a stunning new expression in this truly remarkable design. The timepiece exudes a class and elegance throughout every aspect of its design. The crown is ion-plated in gold, a process which imparts brilliant shine and durability. It serves as the perfect backdrop to highlight the star of the design.

Our Master Jewellers have replicated with exacting care the original Spanish reales coin in aged silver relief. The level of detail is extraordinary, creating the impression of a real coin! The motif depicts the words CAROLUS · III DEI · GRATIA (“Carlos 3rd by the grace of God”) identifying the inspiration as the obverse of a reales coin from the reign of King Charles III of Spain from the year 1788. The “dump,” the inner section of the original coin punched out to make two coins to alleviate the shortage of coinage in the early settlement, has been rendered in a gold finish. “New South Wales” and the minting year “1813” bring more authenticity to this replica of Australia’s most coveted coin. It’s a dramatic touch which contrasts beautifully with the replica Holey Dollar and the gold-tone casing.
