200th Anniversary of the Sovereign!


Spectacular Sovereign Celebration!

Graced with the timeless beauty of Benedetto Pistrucci’s St George & the Dragon design, the Gold Sovereign was first issued in 1817. To celebrate the 200th anniversary of “the world’s most famous gold coin”, the Royal Mint has unveiled a one-year-only commemorative 2017 Gold Sovereign – and what a coin it is!

Tapping into 200 years of history, the new 2017 Sovereign Gold Proof carries the original St George & the Dragon ‘garter’ motif used for the first sovereign struck in 1817! Created with the original coin tooling used to strike the 1817 Sovereign, you could scarcely think of a more authentic memento of this landmark moment in numismatic history.

With a sell-out of the limited edition certain, we are delighted to have secured a small allocation by virtue of our status as official distributor for the Royal Mint. With a tiny number in stock, however, you must act now!
