British Gold Sovereign Coin:
Gold Sovereigns can be an appealing coin for bullion investors and collectors alike for its prominent historical use as circulated currency within the British Empire and as an excellent store of value even today. Its name stems from the English Gold Sovereign, which predated it by more than two centuries. The new Sovereign was conceived as part of the Great Recoinage of 1816 to help stabilize the British economy following the upheaval due to military and economic wars with the various regimes of a turbulent France. The sovereign coins were to replace the Gold guinea and be worth 20 shillings.

The Italian sculptor Benedetto Pistrucci was commissioned by William Wellesley Pole, Master of the Royal Mint, to design this new coin. Pistrucci's St. George and the Dragon has been on each sovereign coin's reverse side ever since. The obverse features the reigning monarch at the time of minting. Tradition holds that the direction a monarch faces is always opposite of the monarch that came before. At increments smaller than a full ounce, British Gold Sovereign coins can also be a more affordable way to begin building your Gold investment portfolio.

Happy with purchase

Delighted to receive an Edward VII. Attracted by the premium discount sale. A piece of history. Lower premium than a quarter ounce American Eagle, but still well known by coin and precious metal enthusiasts. Many thanks to the Apmex pickers and staff.

Discounted premium attracted me.

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Seen this in the "Deals" section listed in Average Condition and thought I'd try one. The one I received was minted 1964 which probably explained the almost BU condition. I was delighted! Nice way to add smaller weight bullion at low premiums. I will buy again.

Absolutely fantastic!!

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I was looking for a coin that would be perfect for a pendant. Perhaps something not as modern but not ancient. I figured this was the perfect coin. The order came packed quite nicely and discrete. Now the coin I received was STUNNING for being a random year coin. Only had very light wear on for being over 100 years old. I ended up placing my coin in a custom made bezel. I might order one more of these because now my GF wants one too lol. Thanks :)


  • Pros
  • Attractive Design
  • Cons
  • Common (higher mintage)
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Very Nice Coin for New Collector

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I received a 1909 Sovereign and it very nice condition. The is my first one so I am very excited. Understand that avg. circulation is not going to always look shiny and new, so they are bit cheaper than BU, but for a new investor/collector like myself they are perfect. Very happy with my purchase, will be buying more.
