Details

The Australian Sovereign 2013 Gold Proof Coin is a customised version of the original Sydney Mint Sovereign, representing a modern adaptation of this important part of Australia’s history. The Sydney Mint produced the first Type I Sovereign, featuring a unique ‘colonial’ design, on 23 June 1855.

Proof Quality 91.67% Pure Gold - Each coin is meticulously struck from 91.67% pure gold (22-carat) in supreme proof quality.

Commemorative Reverse Design - The reverse of this commemorative 2013 Australian Sovereign portrays the St Edwards crown, a laurel wreath, and the word AUSTRALIA, which are all historic elements of Leonard Charles Wyon’s original Type I reverse. The modern tribute also includes the inscriptions PERTH MINT, SOVEREIGN, and the traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender - Issued as Australian legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2014 year-date.

Limited Mintage - The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,750 of the Australian Sovereign 2013 Gold Proof Coin.

Prestigious Presentation Case and Numbered Certificate - The coin is housed in a prestigious wooden presentation case within a superbly illustrated shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
