The Sovereign 1914

Over 100 years ago, the First World War ravaged the world. It was a conflict that claimed the lives of thousands. This 1914 George V Sovereign is a tribute to the brave men and women who served on the front line. It also marks the end of a golden era, quite literally, as precious metals such as gold began being replaced by banknotes, in a bid to help fund the war effort. Struck from the finest gold, the coin represents an incredible period of history. An asset to any collection.

1,774,000 Sovereigns were struck in Sydney in 1914 in comparison to 11,501,117 struck in London
