Sovereigns are world-famous and beautiful coins, featuring the heads of various British monarchs on the obverse. The reverse carries the iconic St George and the Dragon design by Benedetto Pistrucci. The Sovereign has been around for more than 500 years, since King Henry VII introduced it in the late 15th Century and has grown to become one of, if not the best recognised bullion coin in the world.
As one of the primary coins of the British Empire, the Sovereign was even struck at mints across the world; including Canada, South Africa, Australia and India. These coins have unique mint marks to help identify which mint struck them, and rare examples from these non-UK mints can increase the value of the coins.
All Gold Sovereigns are approximately 7.98g of 916.7 (22ct) Gold
