Double Sovereigns

The 2020 gold double sovereign is a great choice for investors who are interested in capital gains tax exempt gold bullion. Investment gold is VAT-free and historically has been seen as a safe haven in times of economic uncertainty. The British sovereign started as a circulation coin in 1817 and continues to be a favourite choice of both investors and coin collectors.

What Is the Gold Double Sovereign Coin? 

The first double sovereign (£2 coin), was issued in 1820 for George III, and is considered by some to be be a pattern coin. Under George IV, another gold two pound was made in 1823, and this included proof and circulation issues.

In 1953, for the coronation of Elizabeth II, a very small number of gold proof sets, including two pounds, are known to have been produced, but these were never made generally available, and we believe none have ever appeared on the open market.

If we ignore this last coin, there are a total of 11 different dates of gold two pounds issued between 1820 and 1979, of which, 4 dates were produced for circulation. From 1980, the Royal Mint began actively producing and marketing coins for collectors, and this has included gold two pound coins.


Jody Clark's fifth coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse of the coin.


The reverse features Benedetto Pistrucci's iconic depiction of St. George slaying the dragon.
