1876 Gold Sovereign Victoria Young Head St George Melbourne gFine Short Tail

Sovereigns were issued for Queen Victoria in almost every year from 1838 to 1901. There were three main obverse (head) designs, and two reverse designs. The Young Head was produced from 1837 to 1887 inclusive, with the St George reverse being produced from 1871-1887.

This product is not in Spink! We believe this is a new variation on the 1876 sovereign.

Sovereigns were issued for Queen Victoria in almost every year from 1838 to 1901. There were three main obverse (head) designs, and two reverse designs. The Young Head was produced from 1837 to 1887 inclusive, with the St George reverse being produced from 1871-1887.

Designs & Description

All Victoria Young Head sovereigns from 1837 to 1887 share the same obverse (head) design. The reverse is the familiar St. George & Dragon design originally engraved by Benedetto Pistrucci about 1817. For this date there is also a Young Head Shield Sovereign

 

Mints

 In 1876, the London Mint, and the Melbourne and Sydney Mints in Australia both issued sovereigns. You can visit our Mints & Mintmarks page for further information.

 

Availability

As with many older sovereigns, availability can be quite variable, particularly in better condition. Often we come across small batches of sovereigns, all of a particular date and mintmark, so that we have an abundant supply while stocks last, then we may not see another similar batch for years.
