The Sovereign is the flagship coin of The Royal Mint and has become an internationally recognised symbol of unrivalled accuracy, integrity and strength. It has always been produced by The Royal Mint, an institution with more than 1,100 years of history and heritage, and we continue to preserve the quality and accuracy of the coin to this day.
In keeping with tradition, The Half-Sovereign 2018 features Benedetto Pistrucci’s depiction of St George and the dragon, a design that has come to define The Sovereign. First struck for the Sovereigns of George III in 1817, this iconic image has endured for more than 200 years. The Sovereign 2018 range also includes a gold Sovereign bullion coin.
