Gold Sovereign Coin Grade C - Secondary Market

Grade C sovereigns are not good enough for us to sell as our usual secondary market bullion sovereigns but they are too good to scrap. They may be ex-jewellery sovereigns or scratched and will be above the weight of 7.90g. The coins are CGT exempt and are struck in 22 carat gold.

We do not recommend these coins as an investment item as they have defects like deep scratches, mount marks, polishing marks or red spots.

We do have some customers who use the 'grade C' sovereigns for jewellery or other purposes. Please contact us if you want any further details. 

See our Grade C Half Sovereigns.


(VAT Exempt)
Totals are approximate until metal prices are confirmed on the next LBMA fix.

Grade C Sovereign Coins 

These 22 carat gold coins are our choice of date and will be chosen from a selection of gold sovereigns depending on available stock at the time of order. 

These gold sovereigns have been checked by our expert numismatists. They don't meet the grade for our standard secondary market bullion sovereigns but they are too good to send to scrap. If you are looking to buy gold at a low premium above spot, to melt down or to use in jewellery this is a great buy, but don't delay, stock is limited!

Expert Numismatists

These coins are what some of our competitors sell as 'bullion' with little quality control, which is why some of our competitors sometimes appear to have lower priced bullion sovereigns than us. If you can buy bullion sovereigns from less than our price, it is probably because they are substandard, possibly even fake. It seems some of our competitors, mainly newer ones, can't tell the difference or don't care.
