Jeannette Fishwick has very kindly sent us a 50c Australian coin to enable our Australian customers to make a size comparison with a British one penny coin as used on our web shop for scale.
Coins from left Australian, UK (lower coin), US (upper coin) and Euro
To make things slightly easier we have placed these coins above or below the UK penny to show relative sizes.
This shows the Australian 50c coin with the English one penny coin
This shows how the US one cent coin sits just inside the rim of the UK one penny coin.
Hopefully this will help people worldwide with the issue of scale in our photos. If you wish to add measurements for one of your countries common coins please let us know.
