Created in response to a severe coin shortage caused by the Gold Rush, the vast majority of Adelaide Pounds were melted down due to a rise in the price of gold. The coin before you is one of approximately 200 examples that remain in existence.

Fascinatingly, it can be established that this particular example was struck early in the production process. Coins struck later in the minting of the 1852 Adelaide Pound feature five small dots above '22 CARATS' on the reverse, following modification of the die.
