2024 Proof Sovereigns

The 2024 sovereign range is ideal for collectors seeking the first sovereign coin showcasing the definitive coinage portrait of King Charles III, paired with the St George and the dragon design. Additionally, these sovereign coins offer financial advantages as they are exempt from capital gains tax and VAT-free.

History of the Gold Sovereigns

The English sovereign was first issued as a gold hammered coin in 1489 for the King Henry VII. Designed by German engraver, Alexander of Bruchsal, the obverse featured the King in his coronation robes seated upon his throne, symbolising the power, success and splendour of the fledgling Tudor dynasty. 

Although the first British gold sovereign was issued in 1489 for Henry VII, the modern gold sovereign was first struck in 1817 under George III. Today, the vast majority of British gold sovereigns showcase Benedetto Pistrucci's St George and the dragon design on the reverse, paired with various monarchs over time.

Notably, following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, His Majesty King Charles III now graces the obverse of the sovereigns, including the 2022 memorial sovereigns, the 2023 Coronation sovereigns, and the new 2024 sovereign range.

What Is a Proof Coin?

A proof coin is a type of coin that is produced using a specific minting process that results in a highly polished surface and intricate design details. Proof coins are typically produced in limited quantities and may feature unique packaging, certificates of authenticity, or other distinguishing characteristics that set them apart from standard coins.

Due to their limited production and exceptional finish, proof coins generally command higher prices than regular coins of the same denomination and are highly prized by both collectors and investors.

What Is Capital Gains Tax?

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is a form of levies imposed on the profit garnered from the sale of assets, such as real estate, investments, and collectibles. In the United Kingdom, the present CGT allowance is £6,000 per annum per individual, which implies that one can earn up to £6,000 from the sale of assets prior to being subject to CGT.

For UK residents, bullion coins which are UK legal tender pound sterling coins are exempt from capital gains tax (CGT).


The obverse shows a depiction of His Majesty King Charles III uncrowned, facing to the left, by Martin Jennings.

An inscription reads as the following:



The reverse design features the traditional St George and the dragon design by Benedetto Pistrucci, depicting George valiantly slaying the dragon.
