The British Gold Sovereign coins are considered to be among the most prestigious coins in the world. They are classic from the British Royal mint and have become a symbol for British coinage. The gold bullion Sovereign coin was first minted over 530 years ago and remains one of the most recognizable gold coins in the world. They hold an unquestionable amount of historic and patriotic value to Great Britain.
The production of the Sovereign gold coin began under the reign of King Henry VII, circa 1489. Its minting continued well into the reign of James 1, in 1603. The coin we know today finds its origin in the Great Recoinage of 1816. The coin was not particularly popular at first, as the English public preferred notes over coins. However, as soon as paper currency started to be limited by law, the coin's circulation increased, and it quickly became one of the most popular coins in England. This remains true to this day.
These beautiful coins feature a world-famous design presenting the heads of British monarchs on their obverse side, while the reverse presents the iconic St George and the Dragon design by Benedetto Pistrucci.
