1925 was the year of the births of Margaret Thatcher, Peter Sellers and Paul Newman, a year that saw then Chancellor of the Exchequer and Master of the Mint, Winston Churchill, announced that Britain would return to the gold standard. Since the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, Sovereign production had declined, the coin minted mainly by branch mints from 1916. In 1925, Sovereigns were struck in London once more, a singular year indeed. 1925 Sovereigns were struck again in 1949, 1951 and 1952, which are available to purchase from The Royal Mint.
