Overview

The sovereign is a gold coin minted by the United Kingdom. It was first minted in 1817, originally as a currency that was globally accepted. Presently, it is now a bullion coin and is sometimes used in jewelry. 

The coin was called “sovereign” after the English gold sovereign, a gold coin of the Kingdom of England. It was initially minted in 1489 under King Henry VII’s rule and was last struck in around 1603. It was brought back as a part of the Great Recoinage of 1816, in an attempt by the British government to re-establish their currency after they participated in the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars. 

Today, the sovereign was released as a bullion coin in 1979 and has been since. However, it was also minted by the Royal Mint “proof” condition for coin collectors and has been issued yearly. 

Design

The sovereign’s obverse side is always a portrait of the current monarch, meaning the present design is a right-facing portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. A younger Queen Elizabeth II appears in the earlier version of the sovereign. The words “ELIZABETH II,” “DEI GRA,” “REGINA,” “FID,” “DEF” are present on the coin’s obverse side. 

The reverse side of the sovereign has seen many changes over the years. So a sovereign from 2002 is different from 2005. The current design of the reverse side of the sovereign is Saint George and the Dragon. It was originally designed by Benedetto Pistrucci in 1817. The design depicts St. George with a sword in his hand riding a horse slaying a dragon.
