Unique 1899 Perth Mint Half Sovereign.

One coin was struck at the Perth Mint using the 1899 half sovereign dies. And it is this coin, minted as a presentation piece. No circulating half sovereigns were issued at the Perth Mint in the year of its opening.

This coin was struck to proof quality as a presentation piece as is the only known example.

1901 Perth Mint Proof Half Sovereign.

No circulating half sovereigns were issued at the the Perth Mint in 1901, the year of Queen Victoria's death. This coin is the only known example held by a private collector and was struck to proof quality as a presentation piece.

. This presentation piece the only known example.


Australia's gold proof coins are highly respected. 

Australia has some of the rarest and most beautiful coins you could imagine, particularly in the proof gold sovereign and proof half sovereign sector. The coins are prestigious. They inspire respect and admiration.

Ask collectors why they pursue proof coins over circulating currency and the prestige of owning a proof coin is most likely at the top of their list. It's the euphoria that comes with owning something that very few other people can ever possess.

Proof coins are by definition, extremely rare and their scarcity is a natural draw card. In some respect, proof coin collectors are playing it smart because the inherent rarity of proof coinage provides a level of assurance that the market will never be inundated with examples, protecting their investment.

1859 Sovereign - Obverse

Local buyers have always had confidence in this sector of the market simply because of the quality and extreme rarity of the coins.

But another layer of confidence has been added to the Australian rare coin market.

In 2021, international collectors began buying up Australia’s proof sovereigns and half sovereigns outbidding local collectors.

The buying spree continued in 2022. And again in 2023 in Zurich where a Young Head Proof Sovereign sold at auction knocking out Australian bidders.

Demand has increased. And supplies are still as restricted as ever. This is the perfect climate for price growth.
