Each year collectors and gold connoisseurs alike are keen to secure The Sovereign, the flagship coin of The Royal Mint, globally recognised as a coin of distinction, of elegance and of good taste. Only 15,000 coins will be available struck to our gleaming Brilliant Uncirculated standard – this is a strictly limited edition, and The Sovereign 2014 must satisfy interest from collectors around the world. The Sovereign is always in the highest demand.
A century ago, in 1914, The Sovereign was in its prime. Britain’s flagship gold coin had helped build an empire, and the circulating gold coinage was a source of great pride with a reputation for unrivalled excellence and quality. Since then, though years may have passed, little has changed. The Sovereign is still struck today in the same 22 carat gold, and still bears the same esteemed St George and the dragon design that graced its reverse a century ago. This iconic gold coin bears the portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, just as The Sovereign of 1914 bore the likeness of her grandfather, King George V, founder of the Windsor dynasty.
The Sovereign 2014 is struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard, a quality far superior to any circulating coin – and is presented in a stylish display case. A numbered Certificate of Authenticity confirms that it is one of only 15,000 individual Sovereigns to be struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard in 2014. And it confirms that your coin is struck by The Royal Mint, as The Sovereign has been for centuries.
