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.
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.
These NEW Queen Elizabeth II 2019 Gold Sovereign are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and struck in 22ct Gold. They weigh about 8 grams. We think one of the best things about these 2019 Gold Sovereigns is that there is NO VAT payable and when you sell your British Gold Coins there is at the moment NO Capital Gains Tax payable. That could save you a bunch of money sometime in the future. The coins we have are early strikes, that means that they are just a little bit better than the later struck coins. You see the dies wear down and a coin struck at the beginning of a dies usage will be better quality than a coin struck toward the end of a dies life. It honestly makes sense.
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.
