    Will be auctioned off in London October 7th 2021.

    Nice stories in the brochure.

    The collection commences with one of Australia’s most important early coins, the Adelaide gold pound, 1852, of which we offer two examples, type 1A and type 1B. Both examples are certified and graded by NGC, the first as Mint State 62, the second as Mint State 61 – thus making them the highest graded examples which are certified by NGC. Only a handful of examples of this coin are known, and we are proud to offer the two varieties for sale within a single catalogue.

    We also offer an impressive group of gold patterns for sale, some of which are so rare that Australia herself does not house an example within her museums or even within private hands. The 1853 pattern sovereign is unique in private hands, with the only other three examples housed in museums within the United Kingdom, none reside in their native Australia. This sovereign is perfectly accented by the addition of the 1853 pattern half sovereign, a superb opportunity to obtain both denominations.

    The 1855 pattern sovereign is one of only three known to exist. Hocking does not even record an example within the Royal Mint Museum. The accompanying 1855 pattern half sovereign is one of only four known, two of which are housed in museums, while the other is held in private hands. A unique opportunity to own an almost uncollectable coin. Also offered is the 1856 pattern sovereign and half sovereign, examples of which are also absent within the Royal Mint Museum.

    The sale concludes with the exceedingly rare, desirable, and most sought-after currency sovereign. The 1920 Sydney mint. This coin possibly presents the collector with a unique opportunity to complete a collection of sovereigns, or perhaps offers the enthusiast the chance to collect one of the rarest coins known.

    No thank you, it looks pretty the same as a few of my unc 1920 Perh Mint sovereigns which I bought years ago for a few hundred dollars each, [ apart from one little
    tiny mint mark letter which you cant hardly see anyway ]

    Now that the 1853 pattern sovereign on the other hand is a coin I would just about die for ( or trade for my wife if she was still young and pretty ) :D
