Story

Exciting collectors piece

This rare premium grade 1911 coin, the first gold King George V sovereign to be struck by The Perth Mint, is an exciting opportunity for collectors of historic releases.

The vast majority of pre-World War I sovereigns are well worn, unaccounted for, or were melted down for their intrinsic value. With its ‘first-issue’ status and near flawless condition, the 1911 Perth Mint King George V Gold Sovereign is an outstanding offering of history, beauty and prestige.

Historic St George and the Dragon design

The coin’s reverse portrays Benedetto Pistrucci's classic design with the wyvern-like dragon being trampled by St George’s warhorse. Also included is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The coin features a large uncrowned bust of King George V facing left on its obverse.

Presentation packaging

Each coin is housed in an elegant black timber case and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
