Australia, 1880 Sydney Shield Reverse Sovereign with inverted A -

The 1880-S inverted “A” sovereign is one of the few legend or inscription errors across the entire sovereign series. The number of coins available to collectors was once rumoured to be around a dozen pieces, but more recent estimates put the number of coins at a couple of hundred across all grades. It is uncommon in lower grades, scarce in higher grades, and rare in mint state. The coin photographed here is pleasing, with original lustre in the protected devices and in the legends. A scarce and underrated coin.

Grades PCGS AU55.
