Hey FB, most Aussie large cents have low mintages, but don't get pricey until they hit the higher grades. So its definitely better than a British large cent (higher mintages), but in circulated condition you probably only have your 50 cents worth.
And he that hath lyberte ought to kepe hit wel / For nothyng is better than lyberte / For lyberte shold not be wel sold for alle the gold and syluer of all the world. -Caxton's edition of Aesop's Fables, 1484
Yeah, it is a kangaroo, and I call it great condition because there's just some wear on the harilines and on roo's tail. Also a little on the cheek. If it was a US coin it would make an XF easy. I need to try and get a pic.
