Eliasberg lot 2433
Australia 1914S sovereign rev Eliasberg 2433.jpg

This specimen was lot 2433 in the Eliasberg sale, where it sold for $483. The catalog description[1] noted, "1914 S sovereign. Sydney mint. MS-66 (NGC). Types as above. Lustrous light yellow gold." This type was struck 1911-28 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. A slightly modified type (KM 32) was struck 1929 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: 1,774,000.

Specification: 7.99 g, .917 fine gold, .2354 troy oz AGW, designed by Bertram MacKennal; this specimen: 7.98 grams, 22.20 mm diameter.
