The Coat of Arms appears on a background of golden wattle, Australia’s national floral emblem, and a scroll with the word AUSTRALIA. The gold proof sovereigns reverse also incorporates an historic ‘P’ mintmark, which appeared on sovereigns produced at The Perth Mint during the reigns of Queen Victoria, King Edward VII and King George V.
