The first sovereign struck by the Perth Mint for 74 years.

To mark the 150th anniversary of Australia's first official gold coins being struck, the Perth Mint released a book titled "Australia's Sovereigns" in 2005.

The technical specifications of the 2005 proof gold coins were modelled on the Sydney Mint sovereigns of 1855 - the weight, purity, diameter and alloy were exactly the same.

This coin looks to have been separated from the book some time ago - just 3,909 were struck.
