The Gold Standard
The journey to Britain’s adoption of a gold standard can be traced through The Royal Mint’s long history, including back to 1717 when Sir Isaac Newton issued a report that led to the gold guinea being assigned a fixed value. The Coinage Act of 1816 changed the financial system in Britain dramatically, and introduced a circulating gold coin - the iconic sovereign. A new gold standard tying the value of the sovereign to a precise measurement of gold was adopted to help stabilize the country’s war-torn economy, and by 1821, a gold standard was fully operational in Britain.
