The Sovereign 1914

2014 marks the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, conflict on an epic scale that claimed the lives of so many. For historians, military enthusiasts and anyone with personal links to the events of 1914-1918, this beautiful coin is a fitting tribute to the brave men and women who served on the front line, as we remember the sacrifices they made and give thanks for the peace we enjoy today. The coin marks the end of the golden age of The Sovereign, as they were gradually withdrawn to fund the war effort and ultimately replaced by banknotes.

Historic treasures from the home of The Sovereign

An original gift is so difficult to find, but the Royal Mint Originals offer a great solution – historic year-dated Sovereigns to recall special memories and mark those moments that feel like yesterday. These special Proof coins are supplied in their original packaging, making them wonderful collectors’ items and unusual gifts. Your chosen coin will feature either the portrait of The Queen by Arnold Machin RA, adopted for decimalisation, or the later effigy by Raphael Maklouf introduced in 1985. The young queen will no doubt bring back many memories.

What better coin to mark a significant moment than The Sovereign, the flagship coin of The Royal Mint? Highly collectable in its own right, The Sovereign, with over 500 years of history itself, is known all over the world for its famous St George and the dragon design by esteemed engraver Benedetto Pistrucci. The Sovereign is regarded as one of the world’s finest coins, held in high regard for the reliability of its 22 carat gold, its weight and quality carefully maintained by The Royal Mint.

With a range of Proof Sovereigns and Half-Sovereigns struck between 1981 and 1994 to choose from, the Royal Mint Originals make an excellent addition to any collection or the perfect gift to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other special events. And for those celebrating a 21st or 30th birthday or anniversary in 2014, or even looking ahead to 2015, The Sovereign and The Half-Sovereign are both available now! Act quickly for these coins are, by nature, very limited.

I just received my Sovereign and I was pleasantly surprised at the wonderful condition of the coin. It still bore much original lustre!
