Notes:
In 1951, the London Mint was called upon to strike Australian coins for the first time since 1915. The London-struck 19512 'PL' Threepence had a modified reverse and was a one-year type. This coin had 85 thick and 85 thin reverse denticles as compared to the Australian threepences with 83 thick and 83 thin denticles.
