Product Information

Some businesses and banks were unconvinced of the merit of The Perth Mint’s existence when it first began to produce gold sovereigns in 1899, preferring to send raw gold to the east coast or to London for processing. As such, the Mint could only produce 691,000 sovereigns that year.

With a vast majority lost, withdrawn from circulation or melted for their intrinsic value in the 120 years since issue, the 1899 Perth Mint Gold Sovereign is rarely seen in premium quality such as this. The chance to own The Perth Mint’s lowest mintage sovereign in such breathtaking quality is not to be missed.

Iconic Sovereign Design

The coin’s reverse portrays Benedetto Pistrucci’s classic St George and the Dragon design, and includes The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark. The obverse bears Sir Thomas Brock’s Queen Victoria Veil Head effigy.

Secure Packaging

Assessed by leading third-party coin verifiers Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), the coin is displayed in certified security packaging.
