Discover the British Gold Sovereign, a coin with a rich history introduced by the Royal Mint in 1489 during King Henry VII’s reign. Initially valued at 21 Shillings, these gold coins were considered too precious for everyday transactions. Since 1817, the Royal Mint has consistently produced gold sovereigns, each reflecting the reigning monarch. Now available for purchase at Provident Metals, explore the Great Britain Gold Sovereign Coins featuring the early years of Queen Victoria’s rule.

Each Great Britain Gold Sovereign Coin in this collection features the Young Head design of Queen Victoria I, originally minted from 1837 to 1887. Safely housed in protective plastic, these coins are available for purchase at Provident Metals.


Despite Queen Victoria I’s reign from 1837 to 1901, a surprising consistency was maintained in the obverse design of the gold sovereigns. The Young Head bust portrays a youthful and graceful Queen Victoria I without a crown, her hair elegantly pinned up at the back in a left-profile portrait. This design graced the Great Britain Gold Sovereign from 1837 to 1887.


While the obverse design remained constant, variations were introduced in the reverse of Great Britain Gold Sovereigns during Queen Victoria I’s rule. From 1837 to 1871, the reverse featured a crowned heraldic shield, quartered with the three lions of England and symbols representing Ireland and Scotland.


In 1871, the Royal Mint reintroduced the original St. George and the dragon design for the reverse of the Great Britain Gold Sovereign. From 1871 to 1887, both the Young Head Victoria I design and the St. George design coexisted on these coins, marking the only time two different types of gold sovereigns were simultaneously minted.
