In the 19th century, the Royal Mint adopted a policy of striking Gold Sovereigns as close to the mining source of the gold as possible. For the Australian colony, this meant establishing branch mints on the Australian continent that would eventually be responsible for striking Gold Sovereigns locally. Now, Gold Australian Sovereigns are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.

The first Australian Sovereigns issued on the Australian continent were actually struck by the Sydney Mint, the first branch of the Royal Mint on the continent, in 1851. These coins were issued with the British effigy of Queen Victoria on the obverse, but the coins were given a distinct reverse design. Official Gold Australian Sovereigns were first issued in 1871 using the exact designs of the Gold British Sovereign of the era.

The coins are referred to as Gold Australian Sovereigns because each one was struck in Australia by Royal Mint branch facilities for circulation use in Australia. The British Empire decided it was far more economically feasible to use Australian gold to mint the coins locally than it was to ship the gold to London, strike sovereigns, and redistribute them throughout the empire. Australian Sovereigns were issued at the Sydney Mint starting in 1871, the Melbourne Mint starting in 1872, and the Perth Mint starting in 1899.

The obverse side of Gold Australian Sovereign Coins features an effigy of the reigning monarch of England as that individual’s reign aligns with the date mark. Queen Victoria’s effigy appears on coins dated 1871-1901, King Edward VII on coins dated 1902-1910, and King George V on coins dated 1911-1931.

On the reverse field of Gold Australian Sovereigns is one of two depictions. Coins dated 1888-1931 have Benedetto Pistrucci’s image of St. George slaying the dragon. The initial coins, dated 1871-1887, have the Royal Arms with a heraldic wreath.

These Gold Australian Sovereigns are available with plastic flips. These coins come in varied conditions and likely show common signs of wear and tear such as scuffs, scratches, hairlines, and contact marks. All coins are chosen at random and we cannot promise a particular date, design, or condition. If you buy multiples, please keep in mind you may get coins with matching dates, designs, and conditions.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
