What better way to ring in the New Year than with hundred-year-old gold? Struck a century ago at Australia’s Perth Mint, this sparkling P mintmark 1920 Gold Sovereign offers you exactly that opportunity!

1920 Sovereigns – very tough-to-find

The 1920P Gold Sovereign is the only Australian 1920 Gold Sovereign that most of us can hope to own. The 1920M Gold Sovereign is one of the top four or five rarest dates in the Melbourne Mint Gold Sovereign Series – worth thousands of dollars in premium – whilst the 1920S Gold Sovereign is the British Empire’s greatest gold rarity. Australia’s most expensive gold coin, with three examples in private hands, the last time a 1920S Gold Sovereign sold at auction it fetched more than one million dollars!

The 1920P – genuinely scarce

The 1920P Gold Sovereign mintage was closed at 2.421 million. Although this may seem a generous figure, the number belies the difficulty in securing the 1920P Gold Sovereign. The scarcity of the 1920P Gold Sovereign is largely due to the huge number of Australian-struck sovereigns dispatched overseas after WWI to satisfy the debt accumulated during the conflict.

A golden opportunity!

The 1920P Gold Sovereign is sought after in any grade. This is your chance to add this 22-carat gold sovereign to your collection in Extremely Fine to about Uncirculated condition! The first Roaring Twenties sovereign date struck by the Perth Mint, the 1920P Gold Sovereign is presented in a timber case, each coin is complete with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Tiny number available

As the 1920P Gold Sovereign is scarce in premium quality, we have only a few examples available. Do not miss this opportunity – press add to cart now!
