George IV Sovereigns – extremely scarce…

With the modern sovereign introduced in 1817, the sovereigns of King George IV are among the earliest of the series – and also among the rarest. An outstanding opportunity, we are delighted to present the George IV Gold Sovereign Second Portrait 5-Coin Set!

Majestic designs…

Comprising virtually every George IV Second Portrait Sovereign date, the set includes the 1825, 1826, 1827, 1829 & 1830 Gold Sovereigns. Known by less than 10 examples, only the excessively rare 1828 is absent. Each coin features designs introduced in 1825 – William Wyon’s superb obverse portrait of the king, and Jean Baptiste Merlen’s magnificent Shield motif.

Australian history in your hands…

Struck at the Royal Mint in London, the sovereigns of George IV are notable for the powerful connection to Australia.

From the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788, a wild mix of foreign coinage circulated in Australia. In 1826, however, it was proclaimed that only British coins would be legal tender in the colony, and a huge influx of British coinage followed – including sovereigns. The sovereigns of George IV were issued at exactly this time, and would have been used by those who lived through Australia’s ‘wild colonial days’.

Rare in all grades…

George IV sovereigns are rare – largely because of the tiny mintages. Indeed, George IV Second Portrait issues represent less than 1.5% of the total number of sovereigns struck from 1817 to 1931! With millions of coins either recycled to mint new sovereigns or melted for the intrinsic value, these key coins are rare in superior quality.

Immediate action essential!

In better-than-usually-seen Very Fine to good Very Fine, a presentation such as this is rarely offered. With a tiny number of sets in stock, and the original retail price of $11,500 slashed by $1,500, immediate action is essential. Click add to cart now!
