Struck in a 22 carat gold proof finish, the 2019 gold proof sovereign continues the heritage of the sovereign being a popular investment piece, with the limited mintage of only 12,270 making the price very appealing to collectors.
A symbol of prestige since 1489, over the course of its 500-year history The Sovereign has earned a reputation as the ‘chief coin of the world’. Revived in 1817, Benedetto Pistrucci’s iconic St George and the dragon design was commissioned especially for the coin’s return. Featuring Pistrucci’s iconic design, which is synonymous with The Sovereign, our flagship coin is stunning in its detail. Without question, it is an item to be treasured and an exemplar of the quality and craftsmanship for which The Royal Mint is known.
Each year, The Royal Mint issue a proof collection for the sovereign. First issued in 1489, the British sovereign is steeped in history and is popular with investors and collectors alike. Struck to a limited mintage, the proof sovereign is ideal for coin collectors and as a gift to mark a special occasion or anniversary in 2019.
The Obverse of the 2019 gold sovereign shows the "definitive" fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.
The reverse of the 2019 gold proof sovereign once again continues the classic depiction of St George and the Dragon by famed engraver Benedetto Pistrucci, with this cornerstone of British coinage paying homage to a historically celebrated design.
