COMMENTS
The owner of the 1901 Perth Mint gold proofs has just added another superb piece to his proof gold collection with the purchase of this 1871 Proof Sovereign. Unique, it is the very first gold proof coin to be struck in Australia and represents the first year of an important design change from the Sydney Mint design to the Young Head portrait of Queen Victoria. Unequivocally, a heritage piece.
