In 1918 towards the end of World War I, the Royal Mint sent Sovereign dies to India to be used in the striking of gold sovereigns. These were the only Indian Sovereigns struck until just recently when some were struck for Queen Elizabeth II. These George V Sovereigns are struck in 22ct Gold and weigh about 8 grams, they are in Extremely Fine condition. A fantastic one-year type coin of King George V and of India. Worth thinking about adding it to your collection, especially at this price! Stock availability is limited, so we can only make available 2 coins per collector.
This is a scale to weigh gold sovereigns and half sovereigns. They were made ca 1848 or slightly later. You placed the gold coin in the hole and if the scale balanced then the coin was real. If it didn’t balance then you knew the coin was a fake. Very useful as a Gold Sovereign was a lot of money at the time. We have just three gold sovereign scales available at this time. We think they are fantastic and any sovereign collector can fancy up their collection with one. But only three pieces available.
Gold Sovereign from Queen Victoria featuring Young Head Portrait & Shield. The coins are all selected and many are well above average. All coins are original and genuine and were struck in 22ct (916 2/3rd fine gold).
