One of the key coins in the 1855-1931 Australian Sovereign Series, the 1879S Sovereign is excessively rare in the spellbinding quality seen here. Truly exceptional, this coin has been graded at MS63 – the equivalent of Choice Uncirculated.

The Sydney Mint struck 1.366 million sovereigns in 1879. Although there is no record of how many St George and how many Shields were struck, there is no question that the former is much rarer than the latter – and most other Young Head Sovereigns as well! Indeed, the 1879S is one of the top five dates in the 1871-87 Sovereign Series.

Uniting the youthful splendour of the Queen Victoria portrait with the power of Pistrucci’s St George & the Dragon motif, the 1879S Sovereign is an object of immense beauty – in any grade. In the glittering quality seen here, with sharply detailed designs harmonising with rich hues, original lustre and partially reflective surfaces, this 140-year-only coin will take your breath away.

Illustrating the quality of the coin, and the importance of this opportunity, only three examples of the 1879S St George have been graded higher by PCGS.
