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.
