For the first time ever, The Perth Mint has struck a DOUBLE gold sovereign!!!
Originally produced by The Royal Mint in the UK, generally, for commemorative purposes, the double sovereign is exactly as it sounds - double the weight of one sovereign. At 28.9mm in diameter, it is also somewhat larger in size than its more common little brother.
And now, there is an Australian double sovereign! Featuring a design reminiscent of the very first sovereigns to leave the Sydney Mint in 1855, each 91.7% pure gold coin is housed in a presentation case with numbered certificate.
This new addition to the modern Perth Mint gold sovereign series will be highly sought after. From rabid gold sovereign collectors in the United Kingdom, to the local Australians with gold fever, the limited mintage of just 500 coins should sell out perilously quickly. Do not hesitate!
