Australia 1910S sovereign rev DSLR.jpg

This type was struck 1902-10 at the Sydney, Melbourne and Perth mints. It is identical to the ordinary British sovereign in every respect except for the addition of a mintmark, which will be found buried in the rock below the dragon on the reverse. Except for some proofs, all the dates of Edward VI sovereigns are common. Following the death of Edward VI, George V sovereigns were struck 1911 to 1931, when gold coinage ceased altogether. The Sydney mint was opened in 1855 to strike the gold found in Australia and was not employed to strike ordinary circulation coinage until 1920.

Recorded mintage: 2,135,000.

Specification: 7.99 g, .917 fine gold, .2354 troy oz AGW; designed by G. W. DeSaulles.

Catalog reference: KM 15.
