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.

Invest in Gold Sovereign coins when you want to balance out your investment portfolio.

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.

My monthly splurge!

By  M

I've been wanting to designate a small bit of my income to gold money to shore up against market calamities for a while now. This listing incited me to finally take the plunge and I am so glad I did. I am a huge British history buff and love antiques, so this combined with the fairly low over spot price was the perfect storm. The random element adds to the fun, and I was praying for a Victoria and lo and behold I got it in an 1871 with a middle-aged Vicky face. The condition is not flawless, a few slight pits and indentations on very close inspection, but the overall integrity is good and what you would expect from such an old coin and adds to the charm in my opinion. Maybe don't go with this if perfect condition is your priority. Very happy I get to have fun affordably investing in gold every month wondering what I will get next. Something I can hold in my hand and enjoy seeing accumulate in my a lockbox overtime.

Interesting Bullion Alternative

I wanted a bit more holdings in the 1/4 ounce range so decided to add sovereigns this time. When these were on sale recently I ordered eight of them hoping for the older coins. All coins were over 100 years old & in very nice XF - AU + condition. I received a variety of dates & monarchs all in much better what I expected for the "average circulated" condition in item description. With the low premium & interesting history of these coins I'll be buying many more. Bullion is nice but bullion with age & history is much better!

Good value

By  Bill G

Low premium over spot price for starters. All that I received were dated between 1893 and 1915 (Victoria, Edward VII, and George V) and all were in nice shape - good clear dates, detail/relief was clear - all in all, very nice, but lacking the luster of mint/BU coins because these were actually in circulation. I'll buy more.

A real pleasant surprise with my 'random' purchase

By  Jersey Kid

from Katy, TX.

5.0

I said "Generic Brand" was a Con because the usual output from this is a bunch of recent date sovereigns of EIIR. Now, gold is gold, so any sovereign is a good sovereign. But, I was bowled over when my order of three arrived. I received two VRs, an 1886 young image and an 1891 Jubilee crown. Both were in very, very good condition. The third was an EIIR, to be sure. However, it was a 1963. I will certainly buy using this option again!

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.
