In the modern era, the Royal Mint issues two different 5 Pound sterling gold coins for investors and collectors. These include the modern 5 Pound crown, a largely commemorative issue, and the 5 Pound Sovereign. Known as the Quintuple Sovereign, the 5 Pound Gold Sovereign is a relatively rare issue compared to the other denominations in the Sovereign.

Modern Gold Sovereigns from the Royal Mint were first issued in 1817. This occurred after the Great Recoinage of 1816 and introduced a series of gold coins based on the historic Gold English Sovereign coins issued during the reign of the Tudors. The 5 Pound Gold Sovereign is one of the rarer pieces. Issued first as a pattern coin in 1820 during the reign of King George III, it has only been issued with some regularity during Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.

All of the 5 Pound Gold British Sovereigns available here come in individual plastic slabs from the NGC. Coins with a Mint State 69 certification are considered near-perfect specimens. An MS69 coin has full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws may not exceed minuscule contact marks or hairlines and must located outside the primary focal points.

Silver.com offers these coins to you at random. We select all of the coins at random after your payment has cleared. We only guarantee that the coins come with an MS69 certification and cannot guarantee a particular date in advance. If you buy more than one, you may receive matching coins.

On the obverse side of the 5 Pound Gold British Sovereign is a portrait of the reigning monarch of England. While 5 Pound Gold Sovereigns have been available since the reign of King George III in 1820, those from the reign of Queen Elizabeth II are most common. The available portraits of Elizabeth II include the second-generation design from Arnold Machin and the third-generation design from Raphael Maklouf.

The reverse face of the 5 Pound Gold Sovereign comes with an image of St. George slaying the dragon. Designed for this series in 1817 by Benedetto Pistrucci, it shows St. George on horseback as he rides to slay a dragon.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
