Known by an estimated 200 examples. Whilst not an authorised issue, the Adelaide Pound marks an innovative point in Australian currency history. Many of these coins were melted down when the intrinsic gold value was greater than the One Pound face value which makes owning one of these magnificent coins all the more special.
Examples of the Adelaide Pound in lower quality are often in reasonable supply whilst higher graded pounds such as this can be quite difficult to source. Once you hold a piece of Australian history as significant as this, you will understand why they are often held onto by their owners!
