Sovereigns were issued for Queen Victoria in almost every year from 1838 to 1901. There were three main obverse (head) designs, and two reverse designs. The jubilee head was produced from 1887 to 1893 inclusive.
Victoria Jubilee Head sovereigns were issued from 1887 to 1893 and they all share the same obverse (head) design. The jubilee head portrait was introduced to mark Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. The design was made by Joseph Edgar Boehm, who was a medalist and sculptor. His other work includes the statue of the Duke of Wellington at Hyde Park Corner.
The reverse is the familiar St. George & Dragon design originally engraved by Benedetto Pistrucci about 1817.
