British Gold Sovereigns
The gold sovereign coin, first struck in 1489 under the rule of King Henry VII, is synonymous with British currency, pageantry and heritage. With a value of one-pound sterling, or twenty shillings, the gold sovereign comprises 0.5 troy ounces of 916.7 fine gold. Whilst the obverse depicts a regal portrait of the reigning monarch of the period, the reverse of the sovereign coin is most commonly associated with Benedetto Pistrucci's St George and the Dragon design which has circulated for hundreds of years.
