The obverse of 2016 Great Britain Sovereigns features a right-profile depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is the longest-reigning monarch in English history and features here in the fifth design of her reign. Created in 2015 by Jody Clark, this portrait shows the Queen at the age of 89 wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. This is the first appearance of this effigy on the Great Britain Sovereign. The field includes inscriptions of ELIZABETH II and DEI GRA REGINA FID DEF.
On the reverse of the 2016 Great Britain Sovereign Gold Coin is a depiction of St. George slaying the dragon. The design shows St. George on horseback in right-profile relief.

The design on the reverse of the coins in the Great Britain Sovereign Gold Series is as iconic as any in the world. The design has been in use with relative consistency since 1817. It debuted on the first sovereigns and was designed by Benedetto Pistrucci.
