1893-M British Sovereign Queen Victoria XF
1893 Sovereign with the Veiled Head bust of Queen Victoria (used from 1893 until her death in 1901) on the obverse, and the scene of St. George slaying the dragon on the reverse.
This coin was minted at the Melbourne Mint, in Australia.
The sovereign was a circulating coin in Great Britain and the Colonies until the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. It was recognized and accepted all over the world, and in fact was used as money in many countries when the parties involved wanted to trade in gold. Until the introduction of the Krugerrand 1oz Gold coin in 1967 the Gold Sovereign was the most widely owned bullion coin, and most of the billion or so sovereigns minted are still in existence.
The Sovereign contains 0.2354 Troy Oz of Gold, 22 karat (91.67%, alloyed with Copper). This coin is in very nice Extra Fine condition, not super rare but Melbourne Mintage of the Veiled Head sovereigns was only 1,914,400.
