The gold Sovereign coin was first struck over 500 years ago in 1489 and is one of the oldest coins still being produced today. Named to honour the king, it has been a symbol of status and strength ever since.

The gold Sovereign coin is internationally recognised. During the 19th century it was classed as legal tender in more than 20 countries.

Struck from 916.7 fine gold, modern Sovereigns feature celebrated engraver Benedetto Pistrucci’s iconic St. George and the Dragon design, which first appeared on the coin in 1817 and still endures today, 200 years later.

Why buy gold Sovereigns?

Due to its status as legal tender in the UK, the gold Sovereign coin is exempt from VAT and Capital Gains Tax (CGT).

Furthermore, the weight and quality of the British gold Sovereign’s 22 carat gold is verified at the Trial of the Pyx, an independent trial that dates back to at least 1282. The quality of the gold is also guaranteed to five decimal places by the 1974 Coinage Act.

Many collectors buy gold Sovereigns because of both their quality and their prominence in the history of British coinage.

They’re also very popular amongst investors who wish to store their capital in gold, a precious metal that is well-known for holding its value over time.

The best British gold Sovereign coins

Available as a half Sovereign, a full Sovereign and tubes of 25, you can buy these sought-after gold coins from various different years.
