Celebrating 200 years of the Modern Sovereign
Re-introduced in 1817, it replaced the Guinea as part of the 1816 Great Recoinage and has gone on to epitomise British quality across the world for the last 200 years.
World-renowned for its quality and iconic design, it set new standards for accuracy that defined a currency.
And now, to mark its bicentenary, a very special one-year-only Sovereign has been issued.
Already sold out at The Royal Mint
Struck to a proof finish from 22 Carat Gold, it features the iconic Pistrucci design of St George slaying the dragon, recreating the original modern Sovereign for one year only.
It is the one Sovereign that collectors simply must own, but many will be left disappointed after the whole edition limit of 10,500 sold out within a month.
The most significant numismatic anniversary in living memory
One-year-only designs are also rare for the Sovereign, so when they have been released they have sold out quickly and become very hard to find – and very expensive to buy – on the secondary market.
The brand new 2017 Proof Gold Sovereign brings back Benedetto Pistrucci’s original ‘garter’ designs for the first time since 1820 and has actually been struck from tools that were carefully remastered from the 1817 originals.
