Why the 2017 Sovereign is the most important for 200 years

2017 is the Bicentenary of the Gold Sovereign.  To celebrate, The Royal Mint has taken the unprecedented decision to add a one-year-only “200” Mint Mark to the 2017 Sovereign.

As a result, collectors around the world are already rushing to own what many consider to be the most important Gold Sovereign for 200 years.

Surprised Collectors

The special one-year-only “200” Mint Mark, engraved below the traditional St. George and the Dragon design, has taken coin collectors by surprise and will add significant numismatic demand to existing investor interest.
