A vital opportunity, emerging as a result of the discovery of the Financier’s Hoard, we are delighted to present the Queen Victoria 1885S 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 most significant elements of the hoard was the remarkable number of Young Head Shield Sovereigns – including the 1885S Young Head Shield Sovereign!

The combined mintage of the 1885S Shield & St George Sovereigns was a mere 1.486 million. As with all Shield issues, the 1885S is extremely scarce, regardless of the quality. With so many melted for the gold or lost in the years since struck, the 1885S is rarely found in any quantity.

Don’t pass up this golden opportunity – click add to cart and hold Australia’s golden history in your hands!
