To mark the 150th anniversary of Australia's first sovereign in 2005, the Perth Mint released a solid gold coin that was manufactured to the exact same specifications as the first sovereign struck on Australian soil - the 1855 "Type I" Sydney Mint sovereign.
A very limited number of the 2005 Commemorative Sovereigns were housed in the hardcover of a book titled "Australia's Sovereigns".
Written by numismatist Andrew Crellin, it provides an in-depth exploration of the history behind Australia's sovereigns, as well as the designs used and the Mints at which they were struck.
It is an essential reference for any collector of Australian sovereigns.
Packed with illustrations and invaluable hints for collectors, it also incorporates a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, and is encased in a protective dust cover.
Combine the quality of the information with the superb design, magnificent illustrations and the fact this is a highly limited edition of just 3,909 copies, and you have a coin and book that is sure to become a treasured collector's items in years to come.
Purchase your copy direct from Sterling & Currency, and you'll get the added bonus of having it signed by the author - you're even welcome to have a personal message added as well - an excellent idea if you'll pass it down through the family or if you are giving it as a gift.
