The Sovereign

The Sovereign has marked many important moments for Her Majesty The Queen throughout the years, and now the coin of the monarch features two special elements in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s 95th birthday. A unique privy mark appears on the classic golden coin, and its milled edge has precisely 95 mills, each symbolising a year of The Queen’s life.

Sovereign

The Sovereign was first introduced in 1489 when Henry VII demanded a ‘new money of gold’ to represent the power of his reign. Issued by every monarch who
followed until early in James I's reign, the coinage reforms of 1816 brought forth a new Sovereign, featuring Benedetto Pistrucci’s masterful St George and the
dragon design. To mark the 200th anniversary of the end of George III’s reign, all of the coins in The Sovereign 2020 Collection feature a special mint mark in the
form of the king’s royal cypher.
