Hello everyone!

Hope you all are well. I am confused about this coin that I recently got - there is no mint mark from what I can tell. When looking online I learned that there were no sovereigns struck by the London mint this year which means that there should be mint marks for these 1919 coins. Does this mean that my coin is a counterfeit?

Thank you so much!






The mint mark is on the ground, below the horse's rearmost hoof. Your coin has a bit of a flat area there.

There are good pictures of genuine coins hereSome of the details on your coins are sharper (e.g. George's abdomen) while many others are vaguer or gone (e.g. the second dot of the designer's initials B. P., the line on the sword, the fore part of the silhouet line of the horse's belly the upper part of the king's ear.), so I take your coin for a copy.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
