1891 Melboune mint, short tailed horse sovereign


Obverse: VICTORIA D:G: BRITT:REG:F:D: , around jubilee head of Victoria left, small J.E.B. on truncation.
Reverse: St. George mounted and slaying Dragon with sword, raised M on groundline, small B.P to right just below, 1891 in exergue.

Obverse of a London mint 1891 long tailed horse sovereign, shown for comparison.

Melbourne short tail sovereigns were not known to exist until c. 2010, and went unrecorded for many years, hence not in Marsh.

This variety possibly even rarer than the London 1891 short tailed variety. (see Chard website for more information).
