1960 Gold Sovereign Elizabeth II Bullion

Unfortunately, the gold sovereign coin was never produced by The Royal Mint in 1960.

The circulation of gold sovereigns halted in 1932, although production resumed in 1957 to met an increased demand for gold bullion coins. The only dates minted during this period were the 1957,58,59, with 1962, 1968, 1974 and 1978 also following.
