Story

Western Australian History

Amongst the last sovereigns considered true circulation coins, with the global economic crisis engendered by World War I sounding the death knell for gold as a circulating medium, Australia's 1914 Sovereigns are extremely rare in the upper echelons of quality.

Struck at The Perth Mint and with a comparatively low mintage, the 1914 Sovereign is now available in lustrous EF-aUnc condition.

Historic 1914 Perth Mint gold sovereign

Struck from 7.98 grams of 22ct (91.67%) of pure gold and measuring 21.5mm in diameter, each coin is a genuine gold sovereign minted at the start of World War I.
