1902-1910-M Australia Gold Sovereign Edward VII Avg Circ

 

The British sovereign coins are held in high esteem even today and there are only very old coins that have international recognition like that of the British Gold Sovereigns. Apart from being minted at the British Royal Mint, they were also minted in several branches of the Royal Mint in different Commonwealth countries like Australia, India, South Africa, and Canada. With each succeeding monarch of the British Empire, the sovereign also replaced its obverse design with the reigning monarch's bust portrait. Therefore there are several designs available in Gold Sovereign Coins. The coins from 1902­-1910 fall under the reign of King Edward VII and the sovereigns feature the bust portrait of King Edward VII. These are rare coins that are extremely valuable.

The Royal Mint is one of the longest living institutions. It is at least 1,100 years old. It saw its beginning in the 886's when it was one among the several mints in Britain. It has minted millions and millions of beautiful circulation and commemorative coins in its lifespan for an enormous number of monarchs.

Along with the expansion of British Empire, the Royal Mint to spread its branches to other countries. Its main branches were,

  • Sydney, Australia - Mint Mark S
  • Melbourne, Australia - Mint Mark M
  • Perth, Australia - Mint Mark P
  • Ottawa, Canada - Mint Mark C
  • Bombay, India - Mint Mark I
  • Pretoria, South Africa - Mint Mark SA

The mint marks can be found on the piece of ground between the horse hoof and dragon and above the Year of Mintage.

However, unlike the long-running period of Royal Mint, King Edward VII’s reign was a short-lived one of less than a decade. He succeeded his mother Queen Victoria after her death in 1902. He ruled from 1901-­1910. The coins for King Edward VII were however not minted till 1902. After a royal proclamation in 1902, coins for King Edward VII were minted. The gold sovereigns of King Edward VII were minted from 1902­-1910 at four different mints; the Royal Mint, Sydney Mint, Melbourne Mint, and Perth Mint.

Sovereigns minted at Melbourne Mint are rare as they were minted in lesser number compared to the Royal Mint and Perth Mint. These coins contain the mint mark “M.”
