A Strike on the Day Sovereign is a special edition gold Sovereign coin, struck to on the day of a special event. In this instance, the coin was struck on King Charles III's Coronation Day (6th May 2023).
After the passing of Queen Elizabeth II on 8th September 2022, Martin Jennings sculpted and designed the new King Charles III definitive coinage portrait.
Jennings was born in 1957. He graduated from the University of Oxford in 1979, where he studied English Literature and Language. Afterwards, Jennings undertook a course in Lettering (1979-80).
Brilliant Uncirculated coins are usually struck twice to give more definition and relief to the design. Blanks are machine fed into the press but the dies are finished and polished by hand. This finish lies in-between proof and uncirculated and is a good choice for collectors looking to own good examples of the coin design.
The obverse of this coin features a newly crowned coinage portrait of King Charles III, facing leftward, engraved by Martin Jennings in celebration of His Majesty's coronation. Additionally, this coin bears the initials "MJ" and the following inscription:
CHARLES III · DEI · GRA · REX · FID · DEF
The reverse was designed by Benedetto Pistrucci and shows the iconic St. George and the Dragon. This has been used on sovereigns (with a few exceptions) since 1817. To round off the reverse of the coin, there is an issue date and the initials of the engraver expertly incorporated.
