The Sovereign Gold Coin
The Sovereign is The Royal Mint’s 22 carat gold flagship coin and has been a constant of British coinage, admired and trusted through times of change. It features Benedetto Pistrucci’s original St George and the dragon design and for 2017 has the addition of a privy mark on the reverse to acknowledge its 200th anniversary.
This bullion coin is an investment piece and the weight and quality is verified at the Trial of the Pyx - an exacting independent trial dating back to at least 1282.

To preserve your investment, the bullion Sovereign coin is packaged in a single coin capsule and is also available in a 25 coin tube. Being UK legal tender it is VAT free and Capital Gains Tax exempt.
