    Victoria gold "St. George" Sovereign 1879-S MS63 PCGS, Sydney mint, KM7, S-3858A. Of the series of sovereigns struck from Australian gold the 1879-S is a far better date to obtain, especially in Mint state such as this superb example, retaining almost its full cartwheel luster and extremely few detracting marks. High up the certified rankings across both NGC and PCGS, tied with 3 others and with only 3 graded higher, this is the second finest circulation strike of the 1879-S we have offered, the finest being MS64 NGC which realized $14,100 in our September 2013 Long Beach auction. Truly this is one for the advanced collector of Australian sovereigns.
