Discovered as part of the Swiss Bank Sovereign Hoard, we are delighted to present the 1868 Sydney Mint Sovereign.

The penultimate date of the 1855-70 Sydney Mint Sovereign Series, with no coins struck in 1869, the 1868 issue is typical of all Sydney Mint Sovereigns - low-mintage, and very scarce today. This scarcity is largely due to the number lost to the melting pot in the 149 years since struck at Australia's first official mint, and the number shipped overseas.
