    You are here: GOLD 1916S Sovereign & Half Sovereign Pair aUNC-UNC
Struck in the year Australia made its debut on the Western Front, the 1916S Sovereign & Half Sovereign Pair is as sought after for the rich history as it is for the scarcity, beauty and prestige. An important opportunity for a handful of our clients, we have been able to source a small number of these highly desirable WWI coins – in virtually flawless condition!

The First World War ultimately dealt a death blow to gold as circulating currency, and during the war years, production of gold coins dropped significantly. Indeed, the mintage of the 1916S Sovereign is the lowest of any Sydney Mint Sovereign from 1888 to 1919! The 1916S Half Sovereign is just as notable as its larger counterpart, as it was the very last half sovereign struck at the Sydney Mint!

A premium grade presentation, the 1916S Half Sovereigns and 1916S Sovereigns presented here are virtually as good as the day they were struck at the Sydney Mint, a century ago. Housed within a prestigious timber case, complete with a Certificate of Authenticity, this historic pair is graded from about Uncirculated to Uncirculated condition.
