Coin Specification

The 1989 gold sovereign is only available in a proof finish. No uncirculated version of this sovereign was issued. Bernard Sindall designed the reverse and obverse of this coin to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the first gold sovereign for Henry VII in 1489. The original sovereigns were intended to be used as a symbol of Britain's importance and wealth, to impress the rest of Europe. Loose proof sovereigns come in their original capsule but are not accompanied by box or certificate.

The obverse features a representation of the Queen at her coronation. She is seated facing on a throne and is holding the Sceptre with the Cross and the Rod with the Dove. The legend reads ELIZABETH.II.DEI.GRA.REG.FID.DEF.

The reverse of the 1989 Elizabeth II gold sovereign mirrors its 500 year old original counterpart. The Royal Arms shield is surmounted by the royal crown, both of these images are superimposed upon a double Tudor rose. The inscription reads 1489-1989 ANNIVERSARY OF THE GOLD SOVEREIGN. Both the reverse and the obverse designs were created by the sculptor, Bernard Sindall.
