In 1912, sovereigns were issued at the Royal Mint, London, and at Melbourne, Perth and Sydney in Australia.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. The mintmarks are to be found on the ground above the centre of the date , the Melbourne mint being denoted with the letter M.


During King George V's reign there were two types of portrait, the large head and the small head. 1911-1928 features the large head type. On the Obverse of the 1912 gold sovereign the Kings bare head is facing left and the letters B.M are at the bottom of the truncation. B.M are the initials of the Australian designer Bertram Mackennal.


The reverse features St George mounted on a horse slaying a dragon with his sword. This classical and beautiful design is by Benedetto Pistrucci ,his initials BP can be found at the bottom of the sovereign to the right.
