Throughout the history of Gold Sovereign coin production there have been many locations that the Royal Mint used. Modern production takes place at their plant in Llantrisant, South Wales, but before that they used locations all over the world including Australia and India.

The Royal Mint primarily minted their Sovereign coins in London, with additional production taking place in Australia - Sydney, Melbourne and Perth - due to the discovery of gold in the country. This meant the Mint could save shipping costs by mining and refining the coins in the same locations.
A few years later the Royal Canadian Mint was opened in Ottawa, Canada, and after that came mints in both Bombay, India, and in Pretoria, South Africa. Whilst Indian production only lasted for one year (until 2013 when commemorative editions were made), the Canadian and South African mints would produce for many years before becoming their own nation's minting centres.
