A landmark issue, the 1857 Sydney Mint Half Sovereign was the first of the 1857-66 Sydney Mint Half Sovereign Type II Series. Much better than usually seen, we are proud to present this key Gold Rush rarity in good Extremely Fine to about Uncirculated.
The first date to feature the 2nd portrait of Queen Victoria, the 1857 Sydney Mint Half Sovereign was struck in tiny numbers. The mintage was just 499,000! Given the passage of time, and the number destroyed for the metal value, it's no surprise that this historic coin is extremely rare in superior grade - as here.
