Ian has bought a group of Queen Victoria Young Head Sovereigns the type with St. George slaying the dragon. Each coin weighs about 8 grams and is struck in solid 22ct Gold. The coins were struck from 1871-1887 and are all in Very Fine or even slightly better condition. So the newest of these gold sovereigns is now 133 years old! But it gets even better, all the coins that Ian bought were struck in Australia at both the Sydney and the Melbourne Mint. There is either a small ‘S’ or a small ‘M’ under St. George and the dragon on the little mound they are standing on. Here we present the Melbourne Sovereign with the 'M' Mark. Australian Sovereigns were struck in Australia because they found so much gold there. These are really nice examples, over 133 years old, in Very Fine or slightly better condition, what more could you ask for? I hear you say... How about £30.00 off our normal price for a Queen Victoria Young Head Sovereign?! Now, that would be incredible! Supplies are of course, very limited, so get in quickly on this special offer!
The British Gold Sovereign was first issued under King George III as a replacement for the Guinea series. Each coin weighs just under 8 grams and is struck in 22ct Gold. Here we are offering the Jody Clark Sovereign Sovereign by type rather than by date.
We bought a nice group of the scarce 2004 Half Sovereigns in Proof condition. They are still sealed in the Royal Mint packaging. They come in the original Royal Mint case with the Royal Mint certificate. These are struck in Proof 22ct Gold and weigh about 4 grams. Today the Royal Mint wants £250.00 for a Half Sovereign in proof. These are older but still in their original Royal Mint packaging and at an attractive price.
In 1981 the late Princess Diana married Prince Charles, so in the coin trade this coin has always been known as the Charles & Diana Sovereign. You have H.M. Queen Elizabeth II on one side and St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. Each coin is in gleaming Proof condition, the finest grade that you can get. They are struck by the Royal Mint in 22ct Gold and come in their original case. Unfortunately on some of the cases there was a label attached to the case and part of it might still be adhering, but the coins themselves are in perfect Proof condition. Today the Royal Mint is charging £425.00 for this 1981 Proof Sovereign in the original case.
Queen Elizabeth II came to the throne in 1952 and since then there have been five different busts of her on the Gold Sovereign. A gold sovereign is struck in 22ct gold and weighs about 8 grams. No gold coins were struck for ‘circulation’ until 1967. The bust design offered here is the slightly more mature Young Head by Arnold Machin. Her Majesty is our longest serving Monarch and she is entitled to have the design of her bust changed as she matures with age. All of the coins are struck in 22ct gold all are in Brilliant Uncirculated. Dates will be of our choice.
This Sovereign is struck by the Royal Mint in their highest standard Proof, meaning the planchet and the die are polished before they strike them. Then each coin is struck multiple times to get the best high relief. It comes in a protective capsule and is in Proof condition. The coin weighs about 8 grams of 22ct Gold and has the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
