A Very Nice Coin


from USA


At 1.1775 oz Troy, the £5 Sovereign certainly commands respect as it is noticeably larger and heavier than most other gold bullion coins. The £5 Sovereign offers much greater detail to Pistrucci's depiction of 'St. George slaying the dragon', bringing out the full grandeur of the design. The coin's 22k 'crown gold' composition, classical Gold Standard weight and timeless design make it a must have for any coin collection...

Excellent Purchase

By  Drae

from Savannah


This is a very clean looking coin as it weighs over one ounce. This will not be my last purchase of the 5 pound sovereign. Came in BU condition. Thank you APMEX for keeping quality high.

Stunning proof coin!

By  Breakaway

from New England


I had been looking to purchase one of these for a while and decided to try Apmex as their return policy is exceptional,and I am glad I did! The coin I received was indeed a proof and looked to be uncirculated. The Sovereign is one of my favorite designs,and the 5lb Sovereign is the granddaddy of them. I am very happy with my purchase and will buy another when in stock.

Nice coin. I even bought a frame for it, almost the size of 50 Pesos. Came with its box with Certificate! Thanks APMEX. The only reason I gave it 4 stars because of its color which looks like a copper "same as the penny" but my Jeweler confirmed it's a real gold.
