More Info

In 1919, sovereigns were issued at The Royal Mint, London, the Melbourne, Perth and Sydney branch mints in Australia and Ottawa, Canada. A total of 5,480,430 gold sovereigns were issued in 1919. These British sovereigns have a nominal value of one pound, however, their intrinsic and collectable value far exceeds this.

All dates of sovereigns from the Ottawa Canada mint are scarcer than other mint marks and for some years 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 1919 gold sovereign features the famous St George and Dragon engraving designed by Benedetto Pistrucci.  The C mint mark can be found in the ground below the dragon.
