Deluxe boxed set 24 Aust Proclamation coins, Holey Dollar, ADL Pound

Deluxe boxed set 24 Aust Proclamation coins, Holey Dollar, ADL Pound &c

A large velour lined, hard boxed set with brass clasp, all in fine condition in original hard storage box as mailed 54 years back to buyer, who note on it to family was 'cost two week's wages - store with care' . As average weekly wages are over $1,000 now - clearly;y a most pricey set in 1970. I've seen a similar set of just 15 coins before - also boxed, which presumably sold for far less, but never seen or owned this set of 25.

Collection of uniface correct size Proclamation coins, and rare state 'tokens', also the resultant 'Holey Dollar' and 'Dump' from 1813, and Adelaide Pound and Victoria 2 Pound Gold etc replicas, with case and detailed background catalogue, part of 'Captain James Cook RN Bi-Centenary Celebrations' coin set. Various denominations from Ibis Imprints, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, and book printed by The Wentworth Press, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, 1970. Limited edition - numbered with Certificate Of Authenticity

An identical set 25 Auctioned late 2023 by Charles Leski for many times estimate at $750 plus 20% Buyer Fees = $A900 as you can see - ... 3Fpage%3D5

In 1800 the state of New South Wales wasn't quite the thriving metropolis it is today. As a result, upon receiving 132,000 Copper (Cartwheel) Pennies Governor Philip Gidley King addressed the need for increased stability in the economy. This came in the form of a proclamation which attributed set values to a variety of coins which were commonly circulating within the colony.

The below table outlines the original 11 coins covered, and their newly established values

Coin - Denomination

British Guinea- 1 Pound 2 Shillings
Indian Rupee- 2 Shillings 6 Pence
Dutch Guilder- 2 Shillings
English Shilling- 1 Shilling 1 Penny
GB Copper Coin of 1oz- (-Cartwheel Penny-) 2 Pence
Dutch Ducat- 9 Shillings 6 Pence
Indian Pagoda- 8 Shillings
Half Johanna- 2 Pounds
Gold Indian Mohur- 1 Pound 17 Shillings 6 Pence
Spanish Dollar- (8 Reales) 5 Shillings
Gold Johanna- 4 Pounds

$A225 plus Global Post

Call it - "Coin Box : Stock 224FC " - please order via new HTTPS encrypted SECURE site - And please do that NOW. Too many think “I’ll do that later” and then quickly “forget”. I then often lose the stamps in the rubble here, and waste an annoying hour finding them again. :twisted:


All payment details etc are on: - NICE VFU franking is always used, and I ALWAYS use stamps of some kind locally : see member pix of some of that franking here - COMBINED POSTAGE is fine - save big money when buying more than 1 lot at once! For overseas members, to find out the approx goods cost in YOUR currency, click here - - the $A has CRASHED lately, and for USA buyers etc, my prices are REALLY cheap in your money - lowest for years! MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - don't like it - mail it back within 48 hours of receiving it. No-one ever has yet. :)

Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or Global Admin or ozstamps) here (or on my RARITY website ) for sale, in general adds ZERO to your shipping cost, so have a good look at what is on offer on the pages here, in case something else appeals. And "lay-by/layaway" is always possible - email me with any queries to ozstamps [at] outlook dot com - OR "trade-ins" always possible! If you have a pile of surplus stuff, I may well be happy to offset that against this item, see:

As most know - I do NO fairs or shows, have NO shop, and do NOT bother with eBay or any other auctions. I buy endless bulk lots from Estates, and distress sales etc, in this massive city of 6 million, with no other real stamp buyers here, and offer it here at *NETT* prices for fast turnover. NO "20%-25% Buyer Fees" and “3% credit card fees” to add to my *NETT* prices, as in auction! ZERO extra charged to use any cards - or PayPal in ANY currency. Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - and

Orders over $75 are ALWAYS sent Registered (but Max PO cover is for $A100 only sadly) - cost is extra $A4 local. Request this on order form IF you require it, under $A100. Letter size FOREIGN sendings globally are usually only about $4 untracked. Smallish, large packet items *FOREIGN* up to 500g/1lb are normally sent in stout card pre-paid *EXPRESS* or Registered Envelopes, cost $A20 generally, near always dodging you inward VAT/GST Taxes/Fees! 😊

"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap and prudent at $A2 per $A100 covered locally, or $3 per $A100 overseas - and all buyers are strongly advised to use this, and I generally will add it automatically, unless asked not to. Full detail on all of this - - Phone me anytime with any queries on these stamps: 0409 - 399 - 888
