    Other Information
     
    The Melbourne Mint struck gold sovereigns between 1872 and 1931. The coins show a small M mintmark. The mint mintmark can be seen above the date on the coin, stamped into the ground on the design, these are quite small so viewing with an eyeglass may be required.
    British sovereigns have been struck both at the Royal Mint and at branch mints since 1871. The first mint outside of the UK to strike sovereigns was Sydney. The Melbourne Mint followed in 1872, then the Perth Mint in 1899 the Canadian Mint in 1908 the Bombay mint in in 1918, and the South African Mint in 1923.
