Bombay Mint, India

The Indian Mint at Bombay only struck gold sovereigns for one single year 1918. This makes the 1918 I Sovereign a favourite with coin collectors.


The rarity of a date is not quite in proportion to the mintage figures. Many are thought to have been melted down, some dates being affected more than others.

With any single-date issue such as the 1918-I sovereign, there is high demand as a type coin in addition to demand for it as a date. This applies to mint marks as well as design types, so there is, for example, more demand for the Bombay India mint sovereigns of 1918 than for any of the other mintmarks of that year.
