The Gold Sovereign – A Piece of History.
The UK Gold Sovereign is an internationally recognised coin which was first struck in 1489.
During the 1800’s, Sovereigns were legal tender in more than 20 countries and were minted in Canada, Australia and India to satisfy demand across the British Empire.
Struck from 916.7 purity, 22 Carat gold, modern Sovereigns feature the iconic St. George and the Dragon motif designed by Benedetto Pistrucci in 1817.

Gold Sovereign coins are an excellent choice as they are exempt from VAT and also free from Capital Gains Tax (CGT) when sold on, due to their status as legal tender in the UK.
The size of Gold Sovereigns at 7.99g also adds to the popularity of these coins as they are much smaller and therefore less expensive per coin than traditional 1Oz coins such as Britannias or Krugerrands. Many customers also purchase Gold Sovereigns because of their dates, either as historic links or to mark family occasions.
The primary reason to buy Gold Sovereigns online is the acquisition of gold in a form that is attractive, interesting and easily sold when it is time to liquidate your asset.
The Best of British? Gold Sovereign coins.
Gold Sovereign coins are available as a quarter Sovereign, a half Sovereign, a double Sovereign (£2) and as a quintuple Sovereign (£5).

There are many examples of different designs that have been produced for the reverse side of Sovereigns over the years. Shield designs can be found on certain Victorian mintages and in recent years special commemorative images were produced in 2005 and 2012.
