Australia’s first gold sovereign

Australia’s first sovereign, struck at the nation’s first official mint, the 1855 Sydney Mint Sovereign Type I is of virtually unparalleled historical importance. With so many examples from the mintage of 502,000 lost, heavily circulated or melted down, this key type is also notable for its extreme rarity in premium grade – as here.

An absolutely stunning example…

Graded at AU50 – the equivalent of about Uncirculated – this superb coin is defined by minimal wear to the high-points and outstanding detail in the designs. Sought after in any condition, this iconic Gold Rush coin would perhaps be in the top 10% of surviving examples for quality.

An irresistible opportunity!

This is your chance to be one of the privileged few people across the globe to own the first date of Australia’s first sovereign series in premium grade. Do not miss this opportunity! Click add to cart now!
