1989 Sovereign Redesign

This sovereign features the first sovereign reverse redesign in Queen Elizabeth II's reign.

When these sovereigns were originally issued in 1989, they were not universally popular, and the Royal Mint failed to sell out of its entire issue limit. Since then, demand for the 1989 has grown, and prices are now sky high compared with the original price.

Bernard Sindall

Bernard Sindall designed the reverse and obverse of this coin. The original sovereigns were intended to be used as a symbol of Britain's importance and wealth, to impress the rest of Europe. 

Obverse

The obverse shows Queen Elizabeth II at her coronation. She is seated on a throne, holding the Sceptre with Cross and the Rod with Dove. The legend reads:

ELIZABETH II • DEI • GRA • REG • FID • DEF

Reverse

The reverse of the 1989 Elizabeth II gold sovereign mirrors its 500-year old original counterpart. The Royal Arms shield is surmounted by the royal crown, both images are superimposed upon a double Tudor rose. The inscription reads:

1489-1989 ANNIVERSARY OF THE GOLD SOVEREIGN

Both the reverse and the obverse designs were created by the sculptor, Bernard Sindall.
