Interesting to see that this album was released in 1980s where most of the world Dansco album stopped in mid 60s.
I think I got mine a while back for around $130 or so. Of course, the Aussie $ was quite weak a the time, so that may have helped a bit!
Honestly, I would love to see your Melbourne Centenary Florins if you have them. If I'm to make any significant numismatic purchase this year, it would be a Melbourne Florin or a 1914 One Yen coin in all likelihood.
Issued to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of Victoria (1834) and the foundation of Melbourne (1935). The coins were sold at a premium of one shilling to help finance the celebrations. 75,000 were struck, but at the end of the event 21,000 remained unsold and were melted. It features the centenary logo of an equestrian figure, slightly modified to fit the circular format of a coin (the logo was set in an oval).
In my opinion, it would likely come down to the quality of the coins, especially the Edward VII Florin and a few other coins. If I were in your position @Lyricfive, I'd post a new thread complete with plenty of pictures like you did with your New Zealand type album.
