Australia, 1921 Melbourne Sovereign -

The causes of the traumatic mass meltings of sovereigns in the 1920s is well-known. What is less well-known is that the 1921M sovereign is one of the rarest sovereigns to come out of that period. The 1920S sovereign deserves first place as the key rarity, of course, but the 1926S is often considered the next hardest date. In our view, this is wrong. One glance at the PCGS Population Report shows that far fewer 1921M sovereigns have been graded by PCGS compared to the 1926S across all grades. There are also fewer 1921M sovereigns graded MS64, while higher grade 1926S sovereigns are also more numerous. The 1921M sovereign on offer here is one of the nicer coins we’ve handled since 2008. It is fully lustrous, and has great depth in the strike on the reverse; the mintmark is particularly clear, but so are the rider, the horse, and the dragon. If you’ve been chasing a quality example of this key date, and don’t want to compromise on quality, this coin belongs in your collection.

Grades PCGS MS63.
