This photo had no cropping applied and to get a full frame photo I used a 75-300mm lens fully extended with a 2x converter looking into a reversed 50mm prime lens.

The “LIZ” is from the Queen’s name “Elizabeth” that is written on the head side of the Australian one dollar coin to give you an idea of scale. The scuffs and scratch marks are clearly visible on the four year old coin.

The thick edge and around the circumference of the coin is “milled” with small serrations (three visible in photo) on the outer edge which historically was designed to deter people from “shaving” the coins, whereby the precious metal was melted down in order to forge more coin or to be sold.
