One of the most prominent gold sovereign coins in the world is the Great Britain Sovereign. A sovereign coin is typically a gold coin issued by kingdoms with and monarchies with the image of a monarch on one side and a national coat of arms or other emblems on the reverse. Since 1817, Great Britain has issued a sovereign gold coin with regularity through the reigns of countless monarchs. Provident Metals now offers Great Britain Sovereign Gold Coins from random years that have been cleaned or show other damage.
The modern Great Britain Sovereign Gold Coin is rooted in the issuance of the first English sovereigns created during the reign of King Henry VII in 1489. Those gold coins had twice the gold weight of other existing coins of the era and were struck through 1603. The sovereign ended with the reign of King James I of England.
A British monarch is always depicted on the obverse of Great Britain Sovereign Gold Coins. Most of the coins in this listing are likely to feature the effigies of Queen Elizabeth II, the reigning monarch of England since 1952. There are five generations of her image found on 20th-century and 21st-century sovereign gold coins. Older coins feature effigies of monarchs such as George VI, Edward VI, George V, and Queen Victoria.
The vast majority of Great Britain Sovereign Gold Coins in this listing come with Benedetto Pistruccis 1817 design of St. George on horseback as he slays a dragon. However, early in the reign of Queen Victoria, a design was released for the Great Britain sovereign that included the Royal Arms of England instead with a wreath framing the image.
Great Britain Sovereign Gold Coins returned to production in England in 1817 with the Great Recoinage of 1816. The coins have been widely struck in the standard sovereign, with 1/2 sovereign and double sovereign coins produced at different times. Great Britain Sovereign Gold coins have .917 gold content with .083 copper content and other metals used in the content.
