Details

The Gold Rush of the 19th Century was instrumental in developing Australian coins as this valuable metal emerged from Australian soil. Gold coins were struck unofficially at the Adelaide Assay Office (established in 1852) and officially at Royal Mints branches in Sydney (1855), Melbourne (1872) and Perth (1899) before the Royal Australian Mint became the producer of Australian circulating coins in 1965. These coins pay tribute to the unique Australian Sovereign and celebrates the tradition of adorning coins with single leter mintmarks to show their city of origin

For this special year, the set includes an ‘S’, ‘M’ and ‘P’ privy mark, denoting the locations of the first mints. The ‘C’ mintmark completes the collection. The coins’ reverse emulate a Sydney Mint sovereign design. The Royal Australian Mint opened in 1965, superseding other Australian mints to become the sole producer of the country’s decimal coins.
