Commemorative coin design
As the first overseas branch of Britain’s Royal Mint, the Sydney Mint was opened in 1855 to make sovereign coins from Australian gold. For the first 11 years they were distinguished from London versions by a specially prepared ‘colonial’ design. A testament to the skill of Australia’s early minters, these highly successful issues continue to attract significant interest among modern collectors.
This year’s reverse incorporates a privy mark inscription of the number ‘95’. A highly significant inclusion for royal watchers, it represents the age of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on her forthcoming birthday – a remarkable achievement by Britain’s longest-lived monarch.
This coin is housed in a prestigious wooden display case within a stylish themed shipper and is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
