The 1820 gold sovereign of George III has a laureate head, with St. George & dragon reverse inside an inscribed garter.
It was the fourth and last date of George III sovereign.
There is only one main type, but there are a number of different varieties distinguished by the date numerals.
The pictures shown may not be the coin you receive.

Photographs shown may not be the actual coin and may differ in terms of grade, die numbers, design flaws and other minor details. Contact us if you require a photograph prior to purchase.
The variations of the date numerals will be shown in "style" after a grade has been chosen.
Although some coins may have the same grade, they may differ slightly in wear, but not enough to determine another grade. This will be reflected in the price.
The obverse depicts a laureate head of King George III.
The inscription reads
GEORGIUS III D:G BRITANNIAR. REX F:D: 1820
The reverse shows Benedetto Pistrucci's design of St. George slaying a dragon in a garter. The legend reads
