After a 78-year hiatus, production of the Australian sovereign coins resumed in 2009 in Perth. The sovereign is one of the most famous gold coins ever made. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Australian mints in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth contributed to its success in no small measure by producing large quantities from locally mined gold.  More than 106 million sovereigns were produced in Perth alone during the reigns of Queen Victoria, King Edward VII and King George V. The sovereign was a crucial component to the British commerce and banking system and has a history dating back to the 15th Century.
