Circulation vs Proof Australian coins

By CAA    |   Thursday, 24 September 2020

Circulation

These coins are generally intended for circulation or in Royal Australian Mint regular sets. These coins are graded by most TPG from BS-1 to AU-58 for the ones with visible circulation marks and from MS-60 to MS-70 for circulation coins with no apparent circulation mark. Note that some coins not intended for circulation are struck in a circulation finish.

Proof (PR or PF)

Planchets of these coins were polished before struck (usually struck twice for higher quality). The field of Proof coins wear a cameo aspect, like artwork on a mirror. Frosted relief (engraving) stands out against a high-shine field (background). These coins are not intended for circulation and are sold as collectors items and are graded by TPG with PR as a prefix.
