A key Australian sovereign date…

The last issue of Australia's first sovereign series, struck at the nation's first official Mint, the 1870 Sydney Mint Sovereign is physical evidence of Australia's Gold Rush heritage – and one of Australia's most important coins.

Sought after in any grade…

The 1870 Sydney Mint Sovereign was the 4th lowest mintage issue of the 1857-70 Sydney Mint Sovereign Type II Series, with a mere 1.2m coins struck. Bearing the distinctive Sydney Mint 'wreath' design, with 'Sydney Mint', 'Australia' and 'One Sovereign' proudly emblazoned upon the reverse, this 'last-of-its-kind' key date is highly sought after, regardless of the grade. It is simply a must-have when found in the scintillating quality apparent here.

A stunning example…

Distinguished by clear fields, united with outstanding detail in the designs, this superb example of the 1870 Sydney Mint Sovereign is in virtually Uncirculated condition. With only a tiny number of this key date remaining in such spellbinding quality, you must not miss this prestigious opportunity. Click add to cart now!
