Gold British Sovereign
British Sovereign gold bullion coins are nickel-size gold bullion coins that were struck worldwide at the height of the British Empire.
First introduced in 1816, the British Sovereign gold coin came to be the world's most widely distributed gold coin, a distribution which grew along with the British Empire to be minted in Pretoria, Bombay, Ottawa, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney. Hundreds of millions of Sovereigns were struck at their peak of distribution in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
A large supply of gold Sovereigns and continued hoarding and trade all over the world cause these nickel-sized gold coins to be available today at bullion pricing. All of these coins portray Pistrucci's St. George slaying the Dragon on one side; on the other, the reigning monarch or sovereign (hence the name) at the time the coin was minted. Rulers depicted on Sovereigns are George III, George IV, William IV, Victoria, Edward VII, George V, and Elizabeth II. Because the design varies by year, the design on the Sovereign you receive may feature Edward VII, George V, or Elizabeth II.
