This is for the first time that I have seen a MEDAL made out from a COIN.
But it is a Brilliant idea to countermark the Logo of ANS on an old Crown of Austarlia and use it as a Souvenir.

There goes the numismatic value in those coins.

??????  I actually think the contrary. I expect the Aussi coin will appreciate in both financial and numismatic value, based on what the Missouri Numismatic societies Maria Theresa Thaler has done.  The Missouri "medal" was produced in 1963 celebrating 25 years.  Its on a proof Maria Theresa Thaler ( worth may be at best €20.00)  only 400 were produced. If you can find one you will be paying a little over €100.00. 


Its a matter of personal aesthetics..... Some people dislike the damage to the original coin,  others (like myself) find them most interesting to collect.

I think this is a nice countermark. Struck very clear, You see this kind of modern countermarks very seldom. The costs for making this are not sheep.

If such "damage" was done to relatively rare coins, I would complain about that. But if fairly common coins are used to advertise a numismatic event, that is a neat idea ...

I'm basically in agreement with this - there are plenty of 1937 Aussie crowns around; if a 1938 one were used, that would be sacrilege ...
