2017 Australia Half Sovereign Gold Proof Coin

The discovery of payable gold in the colony of New South Wales in 1851 lay behind the establishment of the Sydney branch of the Royal Mint, which opened on 14 May 1855.

The Sydney Mint produced its first Type I sovereign, featuring a unique ‘colonial’ design, on 23 June.
