Like most Perth mint sovereigns are reasonably easy to acquire in circulated grades but finding examples in
mint state, particularly
at the MS64 level or above can be a real challenge. Like most Perth mint gold, strike depth is a limiting factor on the grade
though at least one hoard of
examples has surfaced in Adelaide which appear to have been struck from a very early
state providing both well struck examples with the quantity required to make examples with good surface preservation
possible. That being said, the finest to have been certified from this hoard are still only grading MS64.
