Made from sterling silver (92.5%), crown coins were the largest of the Australian pre-decimal coins at 38.5mm, weighing approximately 28.3 grams.
Crown coins were only minted by the Commonwealth of Australia in 1937 and 1938.

‘GEORGIVS VI D.G:BR:OMN:REX F:D:IND:IMP.’
The reverse features the jewel encrusted royal crown, with the date underneath.
The reverse legend reads ‘COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA ONE CROWN’.
