Mark a Historic Minting Anniversary

An Exclusive Celebration

In 2017 we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the ‘modern’ Sovereign, a coin with a rich history that is world-renowned for its unrivalled accuracy and iconic design. When we released The Sovereign Collection earlier this year, every version of the 22 carat gold coin sold out, but we are now issuing three more anniversary editions, including this Strike on the Day Sovereign.

The Sovereign’s prestigious reputation means that it is sometimes struck on the day of important national occasions and significant royal events. To mark the exact date of this historic coinage anniversary, a Strike on the Day Sovereign will be minted on 1 July 2017, exactly 200 years on from the proclamation that revived The Sovereign in 1817.

This edition, finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard, is the only coin in the range featuring the garter reverse with a plain, not milled, edge. These coins will have a Maximum Coin Mintage of 1,817, representing the date of the proclamation.

It's here in the US. Wow, so fast. I'm very pleased with it and pleased not to have been shut out of the bicentenary sovereigns.

A very unique coin!

with only 1817 of these sovereign coins being minted bearing a smooth edge I fancy this one will be really sought after in the years to come.
