Boasting over 1,000 years of existence, the Royal Mint is one of the oldest operating Mints in the world today. Their history and experience sets them apart from other world Mints, and their constant production of exceptional, high quality coinage keeps them in the numismatic limelight!

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.
