The history of Gold sovereign coins
Many people recognize the Gold Sovereign coin as the quintessential British Royal Mint coin. Production of the Gold coin began in 1489, under the reign of King Henry VII, and continued to be minted until early in the reign of James I, sometime between 1603 and 1625. The Gold bullion coins did not return to production again until 1817 when Great Britain decided Gold would be the “sole Standard Measure of Value.” Buy Gold coins minted in Great Britain between 1817 and the present, and you buy a piece of history that you can hold in your hand.

Before buying Gold Sovereign coins, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with how the price of Gold is determined. The price of Gold coins combines the Gold spot price, which is the base price for the unrefined Precious Metal, plus markups to cover the distribution, fabrication and nominal dealer fee, together called the premium. This combination represents the price of Gold bullion that you will pay. When you buy rare Gold coins, the premium price will also include a markup for any numismatic or collector value.
Collect Gold Sovereign coins that are known for their beautiful design.
Gold Sovereign coins underwent a few different design changes since their arrival in 1817. While the Gold coins have always featured the reigning monarch on the obverse, it is the reverse designed in 1817 by Italian engraver, Benedetto Pistrucci, which has garnered the most attention. The reverse of the Gold bullion featured Pistrucci’s rendition of St. George slaying the dragon, and it marked a dramatic change from the traditional imagery depicted on coins at the time. The British Royal Mint continued to use this reverse until 1825 at which point they decided to return to a more conventional coat of arms; however, the design made a comeback from 1871 to 1877, and again from 1893 to today.
