The Sovereign is the gold coin of the United Kingdom. It has the nominal value of one pound sterling. The production of this gold coin began in circa 1489, under the reign of King Henry VII. It continued to be minted until the reign of James 1, in 1603. The coin we know today originated as a part of the Great Recoinage of 1816. At first, the coin did not boast of significant popularity as the English public preferred notes over coins. Yet, as soon as the paper currency was limited by law and the coin started circulating, it became one of the most popular coins in England. This remains true to this day.
