Details

The official branches of the Royal Mint opened in Sydney (1855), Melbourne (1872) and Perth (1899). These mints produced sovereigns and other pre-decimal coins until the Royal Australian Mint opened in 1965 and became the country’s sole producer of circulating coins. One of the most visible legacies of these mints was the single-letter mintmarks, which showed astute collectors the birthplace of their coins. Coin’s reverse emulates a Sydney Mint sovereign, a design unique to Australia. ‘C’ mintmark continues the tradition of the mintmark as used by Australia’s first mints.
