Revived in 1817 to help restore financial stability after the economic fallout of the Napoleonic and French Revolutionary wars, The Sovereign has acquired a reputation as the ‘chief coin of the world’. Struck in 22 carat gold and tightly specified to five decimal places, it represents the pinnacle of minting quality, integrity and accuracy. In keeping with tradition, The Sovereign 2019 features Benedetto Pistrucci’s depiction of St George and the dragon, a design that has come to define our flagship coin.

The release of this year’s Sovereign coincides with the 200th anniversary of the Ricardo Ingot plan. In 1819, a political economist named David Ricardo proposed replacing circulating gold coinage with a 60oz ingot held at the Bank of England, threatening The Sovereign’s revival. But this iconic coin endures, trusted and respected by investors all over the world. The Sovereign 2019 range also includes a gold Sovereign bullion coin available in a capsule or tube of 25 coins.
