Physical evidence of the nation's Gold Rush heritage, the 1856 Sydney Mint Sovereign is the second of only two dates in Australia's very first sovereign series - the legendary, short-lived 1855-56 Sydney Mint Sovereign Type I Series. Very rare today, this key coin is a must-have when found in the upper echelons of quality - as here.

With an overwhelming majority of the tiny mintage of 981,000 lost or melted down for the gold in the more than a century and a half since struck at the nation's first Mint, this important coin rarely emerges on the market.
