Description:

King George V 1926 Gold Sovereign Sydney Mint

Obverse: King George V

Reverse: St George & Dragon


One of THE very last sovereigns struck at the Sydney Mint, an incredible memento.

The 1926 Sydney sovereign is something of an enigma to many numismatists: published information on it is almost as rare as the coin itself.

In a description of events relating to the closure of the Sydney Mint, the Deputy Master (Mr A.M. Le Seouf), states that “Anything of historic interest has been preserved for public institutions, some gentlemen who had already made valuable presentations to the Museums coming forward to purchase valuable additions to their collections. In this way there will be a permanent memorial in this city of the first overseas branch of the Royal Mint.”

Very few Australian coins command a heritage as exclusive and auspicious as the 1926 Sydney sovereign - not only is it one of Australia’s rarest coins, it is also one of the most prestigious to own.

Just 4 unique mint-state examples of this coin have been offered for sale via auction in Australia in the past 10 years. Although the clearance rate for these coins has not been high, in my opinion that has come about largely due to the reserves placed on them - they were simply above the market.

This particular example has been well struck, and retains attractive and original surfaces.
