This exceptional set of 27 extremely fine to about uncirculated sovereign coins is a rare opportunity to instantly create a complete collection. Comprising every date struck at Australia’s Sydney, Melbourne and Perth mints from 1902 to 1910, each coin features the effigy of King Edward VII in a physical representation of his short-lived reign.
These specimens are scarce in premium grade due to the passage of time and the impact of history. Many 22-carat gold sovereigns were melted down to repay debt incurred during World War I. In addition, the fact the sovereign was a circulating coin during King Edward VII’s reign resulted in most surviving pre-war sovereigns becoming notoriously well-worn from day-to-day use.
Lavish Display Case
The comprehensive collection is housed in a lavish, lockable timber case with each coin individually displayed in a protective capsule. Each certificate is individually held in the case draw.
