Penny - 1938 to 1952 - Price Guide

Most of the reverses on Australian coins changed in 1938, except for the Half Penny and the sixpence. The Penny design changed for the roo reverse. Our old standby, India, came to the rescue with the Bombay branch of the Royal Mint striking both pennies and halpennies during 1942 and 1943.
