Always hotly pursued, this prestigious pair became even more scarce following the centenary of the Galipoli Landing in 2015! Comprising a King George V 1915S Sovereign and Half Sovereign, the pair is graded at about Uncirculated to Uncirculated condition, making them virtually as good as they were the day they were struck at the Sydney Mint, over 100 years ago!



A Premium-grade Presentation

With the small mintage all but hoarded away by collectors following the Gallipoli Landing Centenary, and hotly pursued regardless of the grade, this historic pair is dazzling in the about Uncirculated to Uncirculated quality seen here!



Certificate of Authenticity Included

The attention to detail evident in each coin's excellent reverse and obverse strikes is carried throughout the presentation, with the pair housed within a prestigious timber case, and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity: your guarantee of a quality acquisition.



An Historic Acqusition

The first overseas branch of the Royal Mint to be established, Sydney Mint was also Australia's first mint. Opened in 1853, it enjoyed an illustrious career of over 70 years before production eventually came to a halt in 1926. Struck at the turn of the Mint's final decade, these 1915S Sovereign and Half Sovereign are superb mementoes of a golden age in Australia's numismatic history. Coinciding with the year of the Gallipoli Landing, they're also a fittingly precious keepsake from a time of global significance.



Features the Iconic 'St George and the Dragon' Reverse Design

Designed by Italian Engraver Benedetto Pistruci for the Royal Mint, this superb motif was commissioned for the 'new' British sovereigns, released in 1817 and beyond. Unsurprisingly, this stunning portrayal of the patron saint of England quickly cemented itself in the hearts of the public and, in the years to follow, collectors all across the globe. When presented as here, fashioned from 22-carat gold and in splendid aUnc-Unc, this design is an absolute triumph to behold.



Hotly pursued, and Scarce!

Mintage figures of the 1915S Sovereign and Half Sovereign were scant compared to today's standards, and many Sovereigns and Half Sovereigns suffered at the hands of profiteers, melted down over the years following their issue for their precious metal content. As a result, both the 1915S Sovereign and Half Sovereign are frequently pursued by collectors. The 2015 Gallipoli Landing Centenary saw an increase in demand for this date, making both issues incredibly difficult to come by - do not miss this opportunity to secure this critical pair!
