One of the most recognizable global currencies of the 19th and early 20th centuries was the Great Britain Sovereign. So-named because the coins always have an obverse image of the reigning British sovereign, this coin series dates back to 1817 and is inspired by the older 15th-century English sovereign gold coins. Right now, you can buy Great Britain Sovereign King George Gold Coins online at Provident Metals.
Your purchase of Great Britain Sovereign King George Gold Coins in this listing comes with a protective plastic flip to house each individual coin. The coins in this series will come with varying date marks that cover the reigns of any King George on the throne between 1817 and the present when the new Great Britain Sovereign Gold coins were produced. We cannot guarantee which King George is on the coin you receive and cannot guarantee you will receive various different ones when you purchase multiples.
The obverse of Great Britain Sovereign King George Gold Coins in this listing features a portrait of the monarch. These portraits alternate between left- and right-profile busts of the king. Early coins in this series have inscriptions in Latin around the outer edges of the coin rather than inscriptions in English.
On the reverse of Great Britain Sovereign King George Gold Coins, you will find the same design for all King George releases. The design on the reverse of these Great Britain Sovereigns was created in 1817 by Benedetto Pistrucci and depicts St. George on horseback with a spear as he slays the dragon. The only monarch to issue Great Britain Sovereigns without this image was Queen Victoria during early portions of her reign.
King George IV was the reigning King of England in 1817 when the new Great Britain Sovereign Gold Coins debuted. The next time a King George was on the throne it was King George V who reigned from 1910 to his death in 1936. The next George to sit on the throne was George Vs son, King George VI who reigned from December 1936 to his own death in 1952. These two men were the grandfather and father of the current monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.
