A 1930 Australian copper coin that values for more than $1million, and gets the distinction of being the world’s most valuable copper coin will be shown off in Melbourne the coming week. It will appear besides Australia’s other rare coins in an exhibition of $4 million at the ANZ bank branch in Collins Street. The coordinator of the show, Belinda Downie stated that the most expensive coin happens to be one of the six of its kind, created as a work of art and not to serve as currency. She even revealed that the owner of Australia’s Proof 1930 Penny had declined an offer of $1 million from an interested buyer. Three out of the six coins are in museums, while the others rest with some private collectors. The Dollars and Dumps Exhibition, from 27 November to 30 November, will display coins from the era of 1813 to 1900 and include a collection of some of the initial coins produced in Australia.
