A genuine artefact of Australia’s golden heritage, the King Edward VII 1903M Gold Sovereign is a must-have in the superb quality seen here.
Ruling only from 1901 to 1910, Edward’s reign coincided with a period of prolific gold coin production in Australia, with the Perth, Sydney and Melbourne Mints all producing sovereigns in each year of his reign. Despite this, Edward VII sovereigns are scarce in top quality. In part, that is due to the passing of well over a century, and the number of 22-carat gold sovereigns that have fallen victim to the profiteer’s melting pot.
The general scarcity is also due to the fact that sovereigns were genuine ‘circulation coins’ before WWI began. The war sounded the death knell for gold as a circulating medium, meaning that the sovereigns of Edward VII were virtually the last to be used in circulation. As a consequence, most surviving pre-war sovereigns are well worn from day-to-day use.
An irresistible opportunity to secure an Edward VII sovereign in superior quality, we have the 1903M Gold Sovereign graded by leading independent verifier Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) at MS62 – the equivalent of Uncirculated.
