COMMENTS
The most potent investment coins are those that are quite obviously rare in themselves. BUT (and this is the clincher) they belong to a sector of the market that is so limited in numbers that it doesn’t give the buyer easy alternatives. It is the notion that if you pass on this coin, you will more than likely never be given the opportunity of securing another date out of the same era. This 1930 Proof Sovereign is one such potent investment item.

In an interview conducted in 2013, journalist Anthony Black asked Coinworks to list ten coin rarities that were priced below $ 5000 and that, in our opinion, were destined for growth. The Proof Sets struck by the Melbourne Mint and Perth Mint - between 1955 and 1963 - were high on our list of recommendations. This 1956 Melbourne Mint Proof Set is one such set.
