Queen Victoria (1837-1901) - A significant year for collectors of special dates, as this is the year the Royal Mail Steamer 'The Duoro' sank off the bay of Biscay. Though this particular coin was not salvaged from the wreck, it is a great 'key date' item. This sovereign was struck in Sydney Australia (part of the British Empire at the time) and the letter 'S' is struck under the bust to signify the place of minting. The coin portrays the young beautiful portrait of Victoria on the obverse, whilst the reverse features the famous Beneditto Pistrucci St George and the dragon.
