A prestigious opportunity, emerging as a result of the recent discovery of the Financier’s Hoard, we are delighted to present the Queen Victoria 1881S Young Head Shield Sovereign!

Stashed away by a major Australian financial institution, and stored in its vaults for decades, the Financier’s Hoard encompassed a treasure trove of Australian gold coins. One of the key highlights was the huge number of Young Head Shield Sovereigns – including the 1881S Young Head Shield Sovereign!

The combined mintage of the 1881S Shield & St George Sovereigns was a mere 1.36 million. As with all Shield issues, the 1881S is extremely scarce, regardless of the quality. With so many melted for the gold or lost in the years since struck, the 1881S is rarely found in any quantity.

Don’t ignore this gilt-edged opportunity – click add to cart now and own a genuine piece of Australia’s Gold Rush history!
