Calendar year mintage 981,000 The total mintage of the first type design at the Sydney mint from 1855-6 1,483,000 pieces The Second Type “AUSTRALIA” Sovereign The second incarnation of the Sydney mint Sovereign occurs in 1857 for currency after a pattern submitted by Leonard C Wyon, dated 1855. It seems Leonard’s Father, William Wyon, perhaps influenced this portrait style of hair, as the gathered hair is very similar to that seen on the British Gothic Florin and Crown from 1847 onward.
