Downies is delighted to offer the historic 1916 Sovereign in splendid EF-aUnc! Struck during a landmark time for Australia, Gold Sovereigns of this date allow the collector to forge a unique connection with Australia's 'Baptism of Fire'.
The 1916 Sovereign holds tremendous visual appeal. In shimmering 22-carat gold, it unites the timeless beauty of Benedetto Pistrucci's St George & the Dragon reverse motif with the distinguished features of King George V. But that is not the only reason that this key date is scarce today. Whilst in part due to the low mintages, and the number melted for the gold in the century since struck, the difficulty in tracking down this date is largely due to the fact that these coins are inextricably linked with Australia's WWI experience.
Struck in the year of Australia's first forays on the Western Front, these coins represent national history you can hold in your hands. Demand following the centenary of Australia's arrival in France has therefore naturally been extremely strong, and 1916 sovereigns are harder to track down than ever before.
Struck at either the Melbourne, Sydney or Perth branches of the Royal Mint - with our choice of Mintmark - your new sovereign is set in a timber case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
