Collectable 1925 Perth Mint gold Sovereigns issued during the reign of King George V. 1,837,901 were struck with the 'P' mintmark in 1925 and are considered a scarce date, rated 'S' by Marsh, and are particularly sought-after in top grades. Perth became the third colonial outpost of the Royal Mint established in Australia and continued striking Sovereigns years after the London Mint had ceased to do so. It opened in 1899, taking advantage of the Western Australian gold rushes of the end of the nineteenth century. A total of 106 million gold Sovereigns were minted in Perth during the time the branch mint operated, and today, the Perth Mint still operates as a fully government-owned facility specialising in striking bullion and commemorative coinage and bullion bars. Each of these 1925 coins bears Sir Edgar Bertram Mackennal's large head portrait of the King with a legend around reading: 'GEORGIVS D. G. BRITT: OMN: REX F. D. IND: IMP:'. This is paired with a much older reverse design: Benedetto Pistrucci's engraving of Saint George slaying the dragon. A dynamic and instantly recognisable motif, it was created in 1817 for the first modern Sovereigns. These Australian branch mint Sovereigns conform to standard specifications, being struck in 7.98 grams of 22-carat (916.7) gold with a diameter of 22.05 millimetres. References: S 4001, Marsh 264. Minimum grade: VF - Very Fine.
