For many decades, what happened to the final Australian Perth Mint gold half sovereign dated 1918, remains a numismatic mystery. The first example of this coin appeared in the 1967 April edition of the Australian Coin Review magazine.

The mintage figure for the 1918 Perth Mint half sovereign is not known but it is estimated that between 200 and 300 pieces have survived.

The Royal Mint prepared 1918 half sovereign dies, but Perth Mint records show that no coins were struck during 1918. Records in the next two years show that half sovereigns were struck in Perth but never issued. It is possible that half sovereigns were struck during 1919 and 1920 using 1918 dies with the majority of the coins struck being melted before released into circulation.

A similar grade was sold by a Sydney auction house for $7300.00.

(Catalogue Value $10,000-UNC).
