Gold British Sovereign bullion coins have been issued as bullion specimens since 1957, early in the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. However, the coins were previously issued from 1817 to 1914 and are based on an English gold coin known as the English sovereign that was first struck in 1489.
All of the 2020 Gold Great Britain Sovereigns in this product listing are available to purchase individually or in multiples of 25 coins. The individual coins will ship to you inside of plastic flips, while multiples of 25 are available in mint tubes. All coins are offered in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from the Royal Mint of England.
Gold Great Britain Sovereigns are struck with 22-karat gold content and hold legal tender status within the United Kingdom. Each coin has 91.67% gold coin with 8.3% copper for balance. The Royal Mint of England issues the coins with an understood face value of One Pound sterling, but like the Gold South African Krugerrand, the coins do not have the face value inscribed on the specimen.
On the obverse face of the 2020 Gold Great Britain Sovereign, you will find the latest fifth-generation bust of Queen Elizabeth II. England’s longest-reigning monarch, Elizabeth II is featured in right-profile relief in this design that was created in July 2015 by Jody Clark. Just 33 years old at the time, Clark became the youngest artist to create a monarch’s portrait for English coinage in the history of the Royal Mint of England.
The reverse side of 2020 Gold Great Britain Sovereigns comes with the historic image of St. George and the dragon. St. George is shown on horseback with a short sword in his right hand as he rides over the dragon with his horse to eventually subdue and slay the beast. This design was created back in 1817 by Benedetto Pistrucci and has featured on the coins in the vast majority of issues since that time.
