The 1852 Adelaide Pound is the nation’s first coin. It was struck at the Government Assay Office in Adelaide from 22 carat gold brought from the Victorian goldfields.
Its historical standing as Australia's first gold coin ensures that it will always be sought after.
Fulfilling our ‘wish list’ to find an Adelaide Pound that has circulated but has minimal marks and no obvious defects, is a challenging task.
Gold is a soft metal and the majority of circulated gold coins show serious blemishes including knocks to the edges: defects that are clearly visible to the naked eye.
Not so with this Adelaide Pound. It is impressive.
Accurately graded Good Extremely Fine with just a hint of wear to the high points, the edges are undamaged and there are minimal marks in the field.
This 1852 Adelaide Pound is an extremely attractive coin: one that you would be proud to show your family and friends.
