Product Information

 

The sovereign is one of the most famous gold coins ever made.  During the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Australian mints in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth contributed to its success in no small measure by producing large quantities from locally mined gold.  More than 106 million sovereigns were produced in Perth alone.

In 2009, after a 78-year hiatus, The Perth Mint resumed regular production of gold coins bearing the prestigious sovereign title.  This year’s Perth Mint Proof Australia Sovereign will again appeal to collectors of remarkable gold coins and those looking for a gift that will be treasured for life.

Proof Quality 22-Carat Gold

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from traditional 91.67% pure gold (22-carat) in proof quality.

Reverse Design

The Australian Commonwealth Coat of Arms appears on the reverse of the 2012 Perth Mint Proof Sovereign, accompanied by the inscriptions AUSTRALIA and SOVEREIGN in raised lettering.  The reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s historic ‘P’ mintmark.

The Coat of Arms appears on a background of golden wattle, Australia’s national floral emblem, and a scroll with the inscription AUSTRALIA.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

Extremely Limited Mintage

The Perth Mint will release no more than 2,500 of these coins.

Numbered Certificate of Authenticity

Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Presentation Packaging
