Rare, iconic sovereigns

A truly precious set of Australian coins, the chance to secure the eight sovereign types from 1857 to 1931 is rarely offered to collectors - largely due to the huge number of coins either withdrawn from circulation and 'recycled', or lost to the melting pots of profiteers over the years.

National treasure

Physical evidence of Australia's Gold Rush heritage, the Australian Sovereign is much more than just a coin, It's a national treasure. Providing a powerful bond with the men and women who transformed the early ramshackle penal colonies into a thriving, united nation. The rich history inherent in the sovereign is as much the cause of demand for the series as the eye-catching splendor, great rarity and undeniable potential of these superb gold coins.
