Gold SOVEREIGN 1860 Sydney about Unc

Magnificent lustre all over, no more than a kiss on the cheek away from a mint state grade.

The 1860 sovereign sits neck and neck with the 1858 Sydney sovereign as the rarest date in the Type II Sydney Mint sovereign series. The known populations of these coins changes periodically over time, as certain coins come onto the market, so either coin can be rightly regarded as being the rarest, depending on just what has been seen on the market in recent months.

Regardless of just which of the two dates is the rarest, it is obvious to state that both of these dates are incredibly rare in premium condition.

This particular 1860 sovereign has fantastic lustre - there's a wonderful sparkling straw-yellow look to the coin either side, that simply isn't evident on coins that have circulated to any degree.

It has just a hint of friction across the high points of the obverse, that is all that separates it from being in mint state, and with a price to match.

Excellent value for the collector looking to build a date set of Sydney Mint sovereigns in premium condition, without the pricetag that a mint-state coin would have.
