We’ve just had graded by PCGS our biggest hoard of gold coins yet. Mostly gold sovereigns the new coins range in dates from 1882 to 1930 and were struck at all 3 Australian Mints. All mint state (uncirculated or better) examples of gleaming gold these are quite affordable and as an investment won’t ever be worth less than their intrinsic gold value. Struck in 22 carat gold this entire gold hoard features St George on horse slaying the dragon on the reverse and the reigning monarch on the obverse. See our gold range in the Australian Pre Decimal Coins-> Sovereign & Half Sovereign category.
A bug in the WordPress update has rendered our newly listed items page currently displaying items in the incorrect order. This problem is being looked into and hopefully will be rectified soon. We apologise this site feature is currently unavailable to our customers.
As a workaround for the time being all new items will feature on the webshop home page so they can be easily found.
edit- 20 Aug this issue is now resolved.

Then we have a run of Armaguard rolls from 2001 to 2006. Rolls and bags we have it all including the Royal Australian Mint issued collectable 5 coin bags of some of the coloured coins.
