The end of an era
Struck in 1916 at The Perth Mint in a comparatively low number, this Gold Sovereign is available in lustrous 'uncirculated' condition.
Struck from 7.98 grams of 22 carat gold and measuring 21.5mm in diameter, they are considered among the last true circulation sovereigns. Shortly after they were struck the global economic crisis brought about by World War I sounded the death knell for gold as a circulating medium.
Iconic St George and the Dragon reverse design
The reverse of each coin portrays Benedetto Pistrucci's classic St George and the dragon design. The obverse of each sovereign depicts the original portrait of King George V which was represented from 1911 to 1928.
The 1916 King George V Perth Mint Gold Sovereign is housed in a lavish ebony timber case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
