The Sovereign – The Coin of the Monarch

The Sovereign’s connection with royalty was clear when it was first struck in 1489 and given a name that reminds us of its links to the monarch. The gold coin has endured for more than 500 years, and has featured the portrait of every British king and queen of the last 200 years.

In 2018 we mark the 65th anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen’s coronation with a celebratory edition of The Sovereign – the coin of the monarch. A regal ‘65’ mint mark was specially created for the occasion by Royal Mint coin designers Natasha Preece and Joseph Melia. The mark can be found alongside Benedetto Pistrucci’s legendary St George and the dragon on the reverse of this Sovereign, struck in 22 carat gold and finished to Proof standard.
