Gold Sovereign 

The Perth Mint’s Australia Sovereign is a modern tribute to Australia’s first sovereign. In 1855 the Sydney Mint was opened and empowered to convert Australian gold into sovereigns, which until this time had been the exclusive right of the Royal Mint. To differentiate the Sydney Mint sovereigns from the imperial coins a new design was developed. The Perth Mint’s modern sovereign depicts the unique elements of that historic design - the St Edward’s crown and a laurel wreath along with the place of manufacture, denomination, and the word ‘AUSTRALIA’.

Commemorative reverse design

The 2019 annual releases marks the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth with the addition of a privy mark. The significance of these elements and the quality of the finished coin is sure to appeal to sovereign collectors around the world.

The coin’s reverse portrays the St Edward’s crown, a laurel wreath and the word ‘AUSTRALIA’, historic elements of the 1855 Sydney Sovereign. The design includes the inscription ‘PERTH MINT’ and ‘SOVEREIGN’. Marking the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth in 2019, the coin also bears an encircled privy mark ‘200’.
