We keep 1923 sovereigns in stock for immediate delivery. We try to maintain a stock of all dates of gold sovereigns, because 1923 is one of the more difficult dates of George V, we make an extra effort to ensure that we have some in stock.
Photographs shown may not be the actual coin and may differ in terms of grade, die numbers, design flaws and other minor details. Contact us if you require a photograph prior to purchase.
Not every date exists for gold sovereigns. The London mint stopped producing sovereigns after 1916, although a few 1917s were issued. From 1917, only the branch mints continued to issue sovereigns, and by 1923 only the three Australian mints in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth were issuing them. The Pretoria mint in South Africa only came into production in 1923.
The Perth Mint issued 2,124,154 sovereigns in 1923, Melbourne 511,129, Sydney 416,000 and Pretoria only 584. Many of these may have been melted down.
Low Mintage - The total mintage figure for 1923 was quite low, compared with over over 30 million in some years.
|S.A.||Pretoria, South Africa||584*|
*Krause seems to suggest that the mintage is 64 for circulation issues and 655 for proof issues.
