  • Mint marks appear on gold sovereign once UK’s power expanded and established the colonies. The Royal Mint opened branches overseas in the following order:
  • Sydney (Australia), 1854, following the discovery of gold in Ophir (New South Wales)
  • Melbourne (Australia), 2nd June 1872
  • Perth (Australia), 8th June 1899
  • Ottawa (Canada), 2nd January 1908
  • Mumbai / Bombay (India), 21st December 1917, during the first World War
  • Pretoria (South Africa), 1st January 1923
  • Mint marks letters
  • The mint marks letters represented the city where the coin was produced (e.g: letter M for Melbourne mint in Australia). The only exception is for coins manufactured in Ottawa, Bombay and Pretoria, where the letter represents the country, and not the city (e.g: letter C for Ottawa mint in Canada ). This can be easily understood, as the letter “P” was already taken by Perth, and could not be used for Pretoria. Only gold coins produced in the London branch do NOT have a mint mark.
