Our best-value Sovereign bullion coins offer you the chance to buy a pre-owned Sovereign bullion coin at the lowest price from The Royal Mint – the UK’s home of gold. We will select a pre-owned Sovereign from any year, enabling you to invest in gold for less. Our best-value Sovereign bullion coins are sold solely on the basis of their gold content, rather than any numismatic or collector value, and may contain scratches, dents and other marks. 

The Sovereign is the flagship coin of The Royal Mint. Iconic, respected and reassuringly familiar, the modern Sovereign dates from 1817, when it was revived to help restore financial stability in the wake of the Napoleonic wars. The Sovereign soon became a popular trade coin, earning a reputation as the ‘chief coin of the world’ as the UK’s international standing grew. 

Struck in 22 carat gold and guaranteed to five decimal places, The Sovereign is the most tightly specified coin in the world. Heralded for its beauty as well as its accuracy, it features Benedetto Pistrucci’s St George and the dragon design, which was created for the coin’s revival and is synonymous with The Sovereign. A triumph of numismatic art, perfected over 200 years by our skilled craftspeople, The Sovereign is instantly recognisable and is trusted and accepted wherever it is presented. 

Best Value bullion coins are randomly selected from the stock available at a single point in time. If you purchase multiple single-capsule Best Value bullion coins in a single order, you may receive bullion coins with a mix of designs and dates or the same dated bullion coin multiple times.
