Reintroducing the design from one of the most famous British gold coins of all time, the Royal British Mint has issued the 2017 Gold Sovereign Coins. This release marks the 200th anniversary of the gold sovereign. In fact, the Sovereign was used as currency in British colonies as well – making their designs recognizable throughout the world.
Each of these 2017 Royal Mint Gold Sovereign Coins contains 0.2354 troy ounces of 0.9167 pure (22-karat) gold. Furthermore, multiples of 25 coins will ship in official Royal Mint tubes.
Benedetto Pistrucci’s masterful design graces the reverse of this coin, featuring St George and the dragon. This bold design has remained unchanged over the years, and it represents integrity and resilience. Beneath the image of the defeated dragon, a small shield design houses the number ‘200,’ representing the two centuries of history behind this iteration of the Gold Sovereign Coin.
On the obverses of these coins, Jody Clark’s rendition of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait is imprinted. Interestingly, this is only the fifth iteration of Her Majesty’s portrayal on British coins. The words ‘DEI GRA REGINA FID DEF’ are also displayed on the rim of this side. This is a shortened version of the Latin phrase ‘Dei Gratia Regina Fidei Defensor,’ meaning – By the Grace of God, Our Queen, Defender of the Faith.
While the very first gold sovereign was struck over 530 years ago, coins with the image of St. George and a dragon only appeared 200 years ago. Commemorate this historic milestone with a 22-karat 2017 Royal Mint Gold Sovereign Coin. They will make excellent additions to investment portfolios and coin collections as well.
