Anniversary celebrations

Produced at the Melbourne Mint in its opening year, the 150-year-old sovereign features Jean Baptiste Merlen’s crowned shield of the Royal Arms and an ‘M’ mintmark. The coin’s obverse captures a youthful Queen Victoria as portrayed in William Wyon’s famous ‘Young Head’. Presented in Very Fine to Extremely Fine condition, the scarce coin is extremely collectable.

The Perth Mint’s Australia Sovereign features a design inspired by Leonard Charles Wyon’s 1855 reverse for the Sydney Mint’s first sovereigns. The design is embellished with a special platinum-plated representation of St Edward's Crown and a small '70' numeric privy mark in celebration of H.M. Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. With a mintage of 1,000, the flawless coin’s obverse portrays Jody Clark’s effigy of the Queen.
