Re: 1931

1st entry...

One million sovereigns, part of those held by the Department of Finance in gold reserve, were melted into bars, this form being considered more convenient whether for storage or for export to the United States.

2nd entry...

One million sovereigns from the Finance Department were melted and cast into 500-ounce bars in the melting house of the Operative Department, which accounts for the standard gold assays mentioned in the record of assays made.
