VICTORIA 1857 Pattern Decimal Penny

1857 Pattern Decimal Penny

10 cents = 5 farthings = 1 'decimal penny' = one tenth of a shilling
In 1857, 1859 and 1860, decimal and other patters were struck at the
 Royal Mint, and it very rarely happened that any of these escaped
beyond the confines of that institution.
Graham was the master of the Mint at the time these patterns were struck.
