COMMENTS
This coin is a superb 'turn-of-the-century' Veiled Head Half Sovereign from the Melbourne Mint. Barrie Winsor had the privilege, and the pleasure, of cataloguing the Reserve Bank of Australia (R.B.A.) inventory that was sold by Australian Coin Auctions in 2005. Right from the outset, Winsor had several pieces in his sights, including this choice 1900 Melbourne Mint Half Sovereign. He was not alone in the assessment of the coin. Strong opposition saw the coin sell for $10,500 on a pre-auction estimate of $6000.
