Complete Queen Victoria Seldom seen in such a comprehensive format, and rarely offered by Downies in recent years, we are delighted to present the complete 1887-93 Golden Jubilee Sovereign 14-Coin Collection. In 1887, Britain began what would be a seven-year sovereign series to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s reign. With the reverse highlighted by the timeless beauty of Pistrucci’s St George & the Dragon motif, the Golden Jubilee Series is distinguished by the obverse portrait by Sir Joseph Edgar Boehm. Whilst the aesthetic quality of Boehm’s somewhat controversial portrait was the subject of debate, there is no argument about the importance of the series. It is sought after worldwide. Featuring every date & mintmark issue of the Australian Jubilee Sovereign Series, this set unites the seven 1887-93M Melbourne Mint dates with the seven 1887-93S Sydney Mint dates. Exceedingly rare as a complete collection, the fourteen coins are offered in Very Fine to Extremely Fine quality. With just two collections available – each set in a lockable timber case with a Certificate of Authenticity – immediate action is a must.

Struck at Australia’s two operating branches of the Royal Mint, the Melbourne and Sydney Mint Jubilee Sovereigns carry M and S mintmarks respectively.

Gold Sovereign Collections A rare opportunity to secure an example of every Australian date & mintmark issue of Queen Victoria’s final sovereign type, it is with great pride that we present the complete 1893-1901 Veiled Head Australian Sovereign 21-Coin Collection. Queen Victoria’s life was blighted by tragedy. Predeceased by three of her children, she lost her husband Prince Albert to typhoid in 1861, and spent the rest of her life in mourning. Struck from 1893 to 1901, the final Queen Victoria sovereign type enshrined ‘the Widow of Windsor’ in gold, with Sir Thomas Brock’s portrait depicting Victoria wearing the veil that she donned for long periods after Albert’s death. Rarely offered as a complete set, the 1893-1901 Veiled Head Australian Sovereign Collection comprises nine Melbourne Mint sovereign dates, nine Sydney Mint dates and the Perth Mint’s first three dates. Highlighted by coins such as the 1899P and 1901 trio (the last Queen Victoria sovereigns), we have two 21-coin collections available – each set in a lavish, lockable timber case with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Struck at the Melbourne Mint, Sydney Mint and, from 1899, Perth Mint, the 1893-1901 Veiled Head Sovereigns carry M, S and P mintmarks.

Early Australia – the Coins of the Proclamation Era Australia’s first official currency system, the Proclamation of 1800 affixed values to the various coins circulating after Settlement. The coins listed in the Proclamation – and those known as ‘Proclamation Era Coins’ – are the foundation stone of Australian numismatics. Ruling the Netherlands from 1795 to 1806, the Batavian Republic issued trade coins for the Dutch East Indies. Circulating in colonial Australia, these coins are rare – and rarely offered in this country. In gVF, this set includes 1/4 Gulden, 1/8 Gulden and Type I and II 1/16 Guldens, with each silver coin bearing a glorious Dutch trading ship motif. Batavian Republic 1802 4-Coin Set gVF

1926 Small Multiple Watermark Perf 14

A surprisingly affordable element of Australian philatelics, we have secured a number of George V 1½d Stamp Paper Varieties from the 1920s Postmaster Hoard. As the name suggests, this accumulation was assembled up to the late 1920s by a postmaster, domiciled in country Victoria. In the perfect position to amass stamps in original condition, the postmaster stashed away a huge number of early Australian stamps. Importantly, as these stamps were

1927 Small Multiple Watermark Perf 13½ x 12½

not placed in albums, they are still in Mint Unhinged quality. Amongst the hoard was found the three different 1½d stamp paper varieties issued from 1924 until 1927. A chaotic period for Australian stamp production, not only did the watermark on the paper change during this time, but so did the perforation gauge! A landmark opportunity, we have all three 1924-27 1½d Red Paper Varieties available as a trio and as a Blocks of Four Set.

Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man Issued for the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), this inventive coin is a spectacular tribute to the great artist’s Vitruvian Man. Unlike other Vitruvian Man coins, this 60mm 5oz 99.9% silver release is struck in the shape of da Vinci’s original illustration. The combination of a square and a circle is central to the power of the Vitruvian Man, as it captures the symmetry of the body, and symbolises, by extension, the symmetry of the Universe. Sure to be sought after by those seeking ‘that something different’, the innovative square & circle configuration will be central to demand for this spectacular tribute as well. Having secured only a tiny allocation from the 500-coin mintage, you must act now. ´´ Struck to Reverse
