Notes:

Actual mintages were Melbourne - 7,292,160 and Sydney - 146,160. Identical dies were used so the issuing mint for a particular 1921 penny cannot be determined.

Two obverse die varieties were used to produce 1921 pennies - so called London and Indian dies. The London variety is rare. See the special article.
