These Gold Sovereign Bullion Coins feature the Fifth Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, engraved by Jody Clark.
There may be slight wear and edge knocks on these sovereigns which does not take away from their bullion value.
Designed by Royal Mint engraver, Jody Clark, the fifth definitive UK coin portrait features a bust of Queen Elizabeth II wearing the King George IV State Diadem. This portrait shows an 88 year old Queen with deep wrinkles around the eye and nose to mouth area.
The Queen has the Diamond Jubilee drop pearl earring 's and her chin is lifted slightly which has been said to indicate that she is looking positively towards the future. The truncation is shaped into a sweeping curve. This portrait was introduced in 2015 and continues to be used today.
The gold sovereign coin is an attractive choice for the investor who is looking to buy gold bullion at competitive prices. Struck in 22 ct gold, the sovereign contains 0.2354 troy ounce of gold. We have added fantastic quantity breaks so whether you are buying 1 or 1,000, you will get more gold for your money.
The modern sovereign was introduced in 1817. Issued with a nominal value of one pound, it was a circulation coin in Britain until the middle of World War I and abroad until 1932. The sovereign was reintroduced in 1957 as an investment coin to meet demand for gold bullion.
All gold bullion sovereigns are bought and sold based on their metal content. Second-hand sovereigns may show some signs of wear or have some small scratches, scuffs and edge knocks. However, all secondary market sovereigns sold by us are of bullion standard, and offer a very cheap way of investing in gold. If you wish to buy a better condition coin, please search for graded sovereigns.
The fifth coinage portrait of Elizabeth II was introduced in March, 2015. It was designed by the Royal Mint artist, Jody Clark.
The reverse design may vary by year. The most common Sovereign reverse was designed by Benedetto Pistrucci and shows St. George slaying the dragon.
