Not every date exists for gold sovereigns. In fact gold sovereigns were not issued for circulation after 1932, although the Royal Mint resumed production in 1957 partly to meet world demand for gold bullion coins.
The only dates minted between 1932 and decimalisation were 1957 to 1959, and then 1962 to 1968. these dates all bear the first portrait of Queen Elizabeth II as used on almost all pre-decimal coins, with the familiar St. George & Dragon design on the reverse.
Of these dates 1959 is the most difficult to find. Because of this, we ensure that we keep extra stocks of them.
The obverse portrait was designed by Mary Gillick. It was used on sovereigns from 1957 until 1968.
The reverse features Benedetto Pistrucci's iconic depiction of St. George slaying the dragon.
