Victoria, Sovereign (Shield) 1843 in Fine

The first Victorian gold sovereign was only struck in 1838. This 1843 Sovereign has the youthful bust of Queen Victoria on the obverse and a crowned shield on the reverse. They contain almost 8 grams of 22ct gold, are over 170 years old, and are in Fine condition. These early date Sovereigns are always difficult to find. Best of all we are asking just the normal price that we sell any shield sovereign just £475.00. We are NOT charging you anything extra for this early date, a nice little bonus for you.

One of the most interesting coins of the Decimal series is the 10 Pence pieces, especially the old large-sized coins. The first Decimal 10p was introduced in 1968, replacing the two shilling coin in preparation for decimalisation in 1971. It features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin on the obverse. Today you get the small-sized 10 Pence in your change, as this large-sized coin has not been made for over 16 years.
