Coin Specification

No British sovereigns or half sovereigns were minted in 1973, however the Isle of Man issued gold sovereigns. 

Only 40,000 of the 1973 gold sovereigns were produced, giving them a fairly low mintage.

The obverse features Arnold Machin's second definitive coin portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The coin bears the inscription ISLE OF MAN ELIZABETH II


The reverse shows a Norse warrior on horseback, making this very similar in appearance to the St George and Dragon reverse which is so familiar on British sovereigns.
