Received a very nice 1966 example...

By  Ron, Silver Fanatic

from San Jose, CA


I purchased a random, varied condition coin, wanted to add to the Swiss and French european coins in my collection. The coin I received was in better condition than the APMEX advertised "AU" for that particular series. The coin is in wonderful condition, very close to "BU", if not better. Nice size as well.

Beautiful Design. Lacks Statement of Gold Content & Weight

By  Washed

from Ogden, UT



  • Recognized Brand
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design


  • No Weight Stated
  • No Gold Content Stated

I do like the design and beauty of this coin; however, unlike most coins, it doesn't have the weight stamped on it and doesn't even claim to be gold. It looks/feels like gold and I'm sure it is; but just the simplicity of ".23 Oz .99 Fine Gold" would be a vast improvement. The price is reasonable, but in the future I'd opt for the French coins here, which do have the weight/gold content noted on the coin.

Better than expected

By  Smudge

from South Carolina


I expected an xf or au coin. This 1963 beauty has no wear. I grade conservatively and it does have bag marks (a few) so I would grade it 60 or 61. I don't like paying more than 10% over melt for gold or silver, but wanted one of these and decided to give APMEX a shot. I feel that it was a sound decision. Very nice coin for a pretty good price. Well packaged and fast shipping. No complaints. Thank you.

Late review, but the Sovereigns I received were all in very nice condition. In fact, they didn't really look circulated. Excellent job as always APMEX. Thanks!

Best deal on gold

By  Oftendrags

from Jonesboro, AR


There's one thing that I see as the end all on these coins, and that is the price. When I look at what these coins cost from a theoretical ounce point of view, they are generally one of, if not the, least expensive form of gold that you can buy. Most of the time, these coins are less expensive than generic gold rounds or bars. I ordered two of these and received two 1912 year coins. Now, they were not in perfect condition, but they were pretty decent considering they are 102 years old. There were a few scuffs and scratches and what I would just call wear. So, if you are expecting to get coins that seem to have never seen the light of day, you will probably be disappointed. I felt that the AU-BU rating was a little generous. However, if you expect to get gold coins that are known worldwide, that are in decent condition, and are a great value, this is the deal for you. Bottom line, these coins are gold. They are an inexpensive way to buy gold, and pay very little premium to do so. I look forward to adding a large amount of these to my collection over the years. APMEX did a great job of communication and delivery was excellent.

My Favorite

By  Eric

from North Yorkshire, Great Britain


I have been a fractual investor since March of 2014. The British Sovereign is a great coin to invest in as it is basically, universally recognized. It is also legal tender with a nominal value of one pound. Although I have purchased and diversified with other products, this on remains my favorite.

Outstanding Purchase

By  GJ

from Alabama


I received a 1957 coin in outstanding condition. The coin looks like it's almost never even been touched.

Solid Investment

By  David

from Winnsboro, LA


An excellent way to start investing in Gold. I bought four on the 17th and had them in my hand on the 30th. All were in good shape two of which were near perfect.

Great value

By  David

from Winnsboro, LA


I ordered 4 of these coins and recieved them in a timely fashion. All were different dates 2 of which were perfect, near proof in how they glowed. The other two were ok a little worn but not bad. I shouldn't be so tough on the other two I recieved as they are advertised, but wow the other two I ordered were amazing.

Exactly what I asked for

By  Paula

from Northeast Pa.


Absolutely Beautiful and exactly what I asked for! Thank you APMEX, I will certainly be back for more!
