Set Description:


This set consists of gold sovereigns issued by Australia and its Sydney, Melbourne and Perth mints from 1855 to 1931. The rarity of these sovereigns makes this set remarkable. The Sovereign during this time period was the chief coin of commerce in the world.

My goal is to put together a high grade complete date and mint collection of Australian Sovereigns. This type set exhibits some of the more significant Sovereigns from my complete Australian Sovereign collection. My love of the Sovereign began with my father's interest in the coin. My collection has grown significantly over the years and I will continue to upgrade the set when feasible. The history and personalities surrounding the Sovereign is fascinating. The importance of the Sovereign in world commerce is unprecedented. My appreciation for Sovereign rose to new heights after researching and later obtaining Sovereigns from the Quartermaster, Bentley, George and Park House collections.
