The obverse of Gold Sovereigns feature a portrait of the monarch who ruled at the time of the coin’s release. Because these coins enjoyed such a long, successful run, there are a handful of designs available. The one you receive will be randomized depending on our current inventory.
The reverse features Benedetto Pistrucci’s St. George and the Dragon. Pistrucci was a gem and coin engraver, and went on to become the Chief Medalist at the Royal Mint. He created this design for the coin’s first issue after the Great Recoinage Act of 1816.
First minted in the late fifteenth century, Gold Sovereigns acted as a worldwide tool of trade for hundreds of years. Reintroduced with the Recoinage Act of 1816, the UK resumed production of Gold Sovereigns from 1817 to 1917. With the onset of WWI, production decreased dramatically as the country abandoned the gold standard. After 1932, Gold Sovereigns were largely issued as bullion coins. Proof versions were released after 1982.
Gold Sovereigns ship in plastic flips. Multiples may come in plastic coin tubes.
