Issued at the outbreak of WWI, and struck close to the location of the first shot fired, the 1914M gold sovereign is steeped in Australian history. With sovereigns already international commodities, chances to secure WWI-era issues are becoming rarer still at the centenary of Armistice. Macquarie Mint is delighted to offer this sought-after coin in sublime Choice Unc: a mouth-watering opportunity for the predecimal connoisseur.

The year of 1914 saw war declared across the western world. Many believed it would be over by Christmas. What followed, however, was an arduous four-year conflict marred with tragedy and great loss - and a Baptism of Fire, as our young country's national identity was forged. Australia was involved from the get-go: the first shot fired during the conflict was at Fort Nepean, Victoria. Just kilometres away lay the Melbourne Mint, where the 1914M gold sovereign was struck.

This iconic King George V issue would be beautiful in any grade, but in Choice Unc, it's a spectacular sight. Do not miss your chance to secure this genuine artefact of Australia's past! Order your 1914M sovereign today.
