Revived in 1817 in the wake of the Napoleonic wars, The Sovereign has acquired a reputation as the ‘chief coin of the world’. Struck in 22 carat gold and tightly specified to four decimal places, it is trusted and respected wherever it is presented. The Sovereign 2020 features Benedetto Pistrucci’s depiction of St George and the dragon, a design that is synonymous with our flagship coin.
The release of this year’s Sovereign coincides with the 200th anniversary of the first modern Double and Five-Sovereign pieces. These larger coins gave engravers like Pistrucci and William Wyon even greater scope to showcase their artistry and ambition.
