1903 sovereigns were issed by the Perth, Melbourne and Sydney mints in Australia, as well as The Royal Mint in London. 4,674,783 of the 1903 Edward VII Perth mintmark sovereigns were issued. 

1903 is the second year of Edward VII's coinage. As sovereigns remained in circulation as pound coins until the first world war, most Edward sovereigns are quite worn. As many people kept 'shiny new coins' from the first year of his reign, it is more difficult to find high grade examples of his second year in reign.
