2017 Unc Sovereigns

The reverse of the 2017 Uncirculated Sovereign with Privy Mark feature the classic Benedetto Pistrucci's St George and the Dragon design, unlike the proof version, which features a remastered version of the design, and includes the garter border.

Sovereigns are British legal tender and both VAT free and exempt from Capital Gains Tax. It should be noted that the uncirculated sovereigns are bullion coins which are sold at a small premium over their intrinsic metal value. They are struck once and may have small imperfections on the surface. Sovereigns are sent to us in tubes of 25 coins. 

The gold sovereign is one of our most popular gold investment bullion coins.

We received our first delivery on 12th December, 2016.

The obverse shows the fifth coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, by the artist, Jody Clark. This is only the second time the portrait has appeared on the bullion sovereign. 

The reverse of the 2017 sovereign features Benedetto Pistrucci's St George and the Dragon engraving, first used on sovereigns in 1817. A privy mark is set to the left of the date in exergue, it consists the number 200 set above a quartered shield. The date is slightly smaller to accommodate the design feature.
