Queen Elizabeth II came to the throne in 1952 and she had five different designs for her busts 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 1957. The bust design offered here is the slightly more mature Young Head by Arnold Machin. Her Majesty was our longest-serving Monarch and she was entitled to have the design of her bust changed as she matured with age. All of the coins are struck in 22ct gold all are in Brilliant Uncirculated. Dates will be of our choice.
