Designs & Description
All Victoria Jubilee Head sovereigns from 1887 to 1893 share the same obverse (head) design. The reverse is the familiar St. George & Dragon design originally engraved by Benedetto Pistrucci about 1817.

Mints
In 1889, The Royal Mint in London, and the Australian mints in Melbourne and Sydney, all issued sovereigns. You can visit our Mints & Mintmarks page for further information.

Availability
As with many older sovereigns, availability can be quite variable, particularly in better condition. Often we come across small batches of sovereigns, all of a particular date and mintmark, so that we have an abundant supply while stocks last, then we may not see another similar batch for years.
