Victoria, Gold Sovereign.1879S
First young head left. R. Horse with long tail. Good extremely fine. Rare.
Category: Milled gold.
S.3858A, Marsh 116
Description: Sydney mint. Bright. Typically some hairlines, however considerable lustre.
Arguably rarist date of the series, along with the 1871S. Seldom available and not often seen in this high grade.
The catalogues completley underestimate the rarity status of this series. The mintage numbers are not known, apart from the 1874S and the 1876S, being included with the shield back variety. The true value and rarity status is much overlooked. This is particularly true of coins in this high grade.
