An irresistible opportunity, emerging due to the recent discovery of the Financier’s Hoard, we are delighted to present the Queen Victoria 1879S Young Head Shield Sovereign!

Set aside by a major Australian financial institution, and domiciled within its vaults for many decades, the Financier’s Hoard comprised a treasure trove of Australian gold coins. One of the major highlights was the astonishing number of Young Head Shield Sovereigns – particularly the 1879S Young Head Shield Sovereign!

The combined mintage of the 1879S Shield & St George Sovereigns was a mere 1.366 million. As with all Shield issues, the 1879S is extremely scarce, regardless of the quality. With so many melted for the gold or lost in the 141 years since struck, the 1879S is rarely found in any quantity.
