2021 Gold Sovereigns

2021 gold sovereigns are a great choice for investors who are interested in capital gains tax-exempt gold bullion. The British sovereign started as a circulation coin in 1817 and continues to be a favourite choice with both investors and coin collectors.

Investment gold is VAT free and historically has been seen as a safe haven in times of economic uncertainty. 


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

The text reads:



The reverse features Benedetto Pistrucci's iconic depiction of St. George slaying the dragon. This has appeared (with a few exceptions) on the reverse of modern sovereign coins since 1817.
