More Info

The Melbourne Mint in Australia struck gold sovereigns between 1872 and 1931. Some of these are common, some scarce, some rare, and others very rare. 1911 was the first year in which coins were issued with Georges's portrait, this also being his coronation year. Fortunately 1911 was a plentiful year for sovereigns with sovereigns being minted at The Royal Mint London, at Melbourne, Perth and Sydney in Australia and also Ottawa in Canada.


This is the work of Bertram Mackennal, an Australian born in Melbourne 1863 who was a sculptor of considerable talent. There are two types of George V gold sovereigns. The first type was issued from 1911 to 1928 inclusive. In common with all early George V coins, they feature a large sized portrait. 


The reverse features Benedetto Pistrucci's St George mounted on a horse slaying the dragon and like the obverse this design is the larger version.
