More Info

In 1917, sovereigns were issued at the Royal Mint, London, and at Melbourne, Perth and Sydney in Australia and Ottawa, Canada. All dates of sovereigns from the Ottawa Canada mint are scarcer than other mintmarks, but for some years they are rare or very rare. 


The Obverse features the portrait of King George V Bare Head facing left, with the letters BM at the bottom, the initials of Australian designer Bertram Mackennal.


The Reverse of this 1917 gold sovereign features an image of St George seated on horse back slaying a dragon as designed by Benedetto Pistrucci's one of the most popular coin designs in the world.
