First introduced in 1489, the Gold Sovereign has become one of the most famous and collectible coins in world history. The gold coins were first minted under the rule of King Henry VII. Each coin had a nominal value of one Pound Sterling and weighed about half an ounce. Gold Sovereigns were originally issued in 23-carat gold (95.83% pure), but the composition was modified to 22-carat gold (91.67% pure). The latter is the same alloy used to produce American Gold Eagles.
The British Empire established numerous mint branches around the world, each producing large quantities of Gold Sovereigns. However, many of these coins were pulled from circulation and melted down over the years. By the 1940s, Gold Sovereigns had shifted from being circulated coins to becoming a bullion item. In fact, the UK continued producing them as bullion pieces. These coins remain one of the world’s preferred means of owning gold.
