Coins from the Port Elliott (South Australia) WW1 Wishing Well

posted in: Numismatics | 0

Shortly after World War One the Port Elliot community created a wishing well and when the well was dismantled its coins; Australian and British pennies and halfpennies, were put aside as they could no longer be banked. This year the committee contacted me to record them for posterity.

This task was completed recently on a spreadsheet. Many of the British coins have the appearance of being taped, possibly for a museum display.

Click to view a PDF file containing a record of the contents given to me, and the coins will be returned to the owners.
