The Modern Sovereign

The modern sovereign was introduced in 1817 and has been issued most years since. The coins continue to be highly sought after by investors and collectors alike. 

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.

Issued by The Royal Mint in 1968, the gold sovereign is a popular coin with both investors and coin collectors. 4,203,000 of these coins were struck by the Mint. 

Obverse

The obverse features the first definitive UK coin portrait of the Queen by Mary Gillick. The inscription surrounds the portrait:

ELIZABETH · II · DEI · GRATIA · REGINA · F : D : + 

Reverse

This reverse features the iconic engraving of St George slaying the dragon. It was designed by Italian engraver, Benedetto Pistrucci. The date and the engraver's initials 'B.P.' appear in exergue.
