Governor Lachlan Macquarie gave the task of re-minting 40 000 Spanish/ American Silver Dollars to convicted forger William Henshall. Henshall had worked as a metal plater  in England. On an 1811 New South Wales muster list he was listed simply as a 'convict' without reference to his trade. Macquarie probably learnt about Henshall's metal-working skills by reputation. Of the original mintage of 39 910 that were struck,  approximately 1000 examples are known to exist today worldwide making the "Dumps" the most historically significant Australian coin which was cut out of the Holey Dollar. 

The obverse features 'New South Wales 1813' and a crown in the centre. The reverse depicts the words 'Fifteen Pence' in two lines. There were four different types struck; A/1 D/2 C/4 and E/3. The C/4 and E/3 types are very rare with only 1% of the surviving pieces being identified as the E/3 type. 

According to Dr (William) Bill Mira - the world authority on Holey Dollars & Dumps, "Believes the crudity of this striking suggests that it might have been a trial die".
