A Sovereign from an established branch mint
This Sovereign was struck at the Perth branch of The Royal Mint and has a distinctive P mint mark to denote this. The mint in Perth was set up in Australia in 1899, following the successful establishment of branch mints in Sydney (1855) and Melbourne (1872).
The coin features Bertram Mackennal's portrait of George V on the obverse and Benedetto Pistrucci's depiction of St George and the dragon on the reverse.
