528 Ajman - United Arab Emirates 5 Riyals 1971 Save Venice Silver Proof KM#27 nFDC with practically full mint brilliance £90 - £130
529 Australia - New South Wales Fifteen Pence Dump 1813 FIFTEEN and PENCE with 5mm date spacing, Mira (1977) type D/2, KM#1.3 the crown bold with the legends clear, Good Fine, has been plugged and well repaired, traces of the underlying coin are visible in places £750 - £1,000
530 Australia - South Australia Adelaide Pound 1852 Type I, Cracked Die Reverse, 9.64 grammes, KM#1 one of the classic World Gold rarities and Australia's first gold coin. VG/Fine Ex-Jewellery. Only around 40 examples are believed to have been minted of the type I piece. The Government Assay Office, Adelaide had only opened 9 months earlier, in February 1852, and had previously assayed gold nuggets into ingots from the South Australia goldfields. The intention was for these new coins to circulate in order to stimulate South Australia's then ailing economy. Now the minting of the coins, rather than ingots required further precision and care, and proved beyond the capabilities of the primitive minting processes then employed, and on the initial run the reverse die cracked and broke. The type II series followed in greater numbers from a new die. Examples of the type I series are therefore greatly prized as so few were minted. A rare chance to obtain such a classic World Gold rarity £10,000 - £12,000
