Victoria Australia

Like most British colonies, Australia had its own Sovereign production capabilities. The coin would mostly share the same features as the Sovereigns of Victoria produced in the Mother country, albeit with a few differences. Most prominently, the One Sovereign coin features Victoria’s hair tied with a sprig of banksia as a proud nod to its Australian heritage. The coin’s reverse lavishly presents its origin of production, with "Sydney Mint" and "Australia" prominently displayed.

The Australian produced Sovereign also features a more yellowish hue due to the greater amount of silver used in its production as opposed to the more commonly used copper. Victoria coins produced after 1871 display a standard imperial design of Victoria instead of the controversial Australian design created from 1856-1870.
