Syd Mint Sovereigns
QUEEN VICTORIA, first type, 1856, the 6 of the date appears to be over a 5. Surface scratches, otherwise nearly extremely fine, and a very rare variant that has previously not been reported.
Several dies of 1855 show the second 5 lower in relation to the first 5, this corresponds to the position of the overdate 5 on this coin. The 6 of our coin is placed much higher in relation to the first 5.
