Interesting find - for me anyway!
Searched 6 boxes and about 150 of CWR of half dollars this week.
1968 x 3
Huge 1911 Penny
Has any one else found on of these or can you tell me about it? Its the oldest coin I've found besides a 1910 wheat cent.

Looks like you found an Australian penny from 1911. The mintage is 3,768,000 I believe.

I found a 1949 large penny from Great Britain yesterday. It happened to be in the last Brinks roll that I opened.
I found an Australian large penny about 6 months ago.

It is worth $1 in Fine and $4 in VF. I know your coin is within those two grades. XF is $22.50
1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

Very nice find. At first glance I though it is a large Canadian penny, but after looking at monarch and going to read the other side. It is an Australian coin. Pretty cool though.
