Royal Mint Product Description:Celebrate The Sovereign with a rare branch mint edition struck in 1917

The Sovereign is a coin with a rich history that stretches back more than 500 years. As we celebrate 200 years of the 'modern' Sovereign, this edition takes us back to a time when war gripped the world and The Sovereign would evolve once again.

1917 was the last year that Sovereigns were to be produced at The Royal Mint's Tower Hill home for many decades. At this time, branches of The Royal Mint around the world struck Sovereigns to meet demand across the globe, each branch having its own mintmark to identify where the coin had been struck. Despite this global production, Sovereigns produced by The Royal Mint in London from 1917 are now very rare as many of those that survived the war were melted down to pay off war debts to America.

The obverse of this 1917 edition features the portrait of George V, an ancestor of Her Majesty The Queen. On the reverse is Benedetto Pistrucci's St George and the dragon design with an identifying mintmark.

Join the celebration of The Sovereign with this 1917 edition, marking a significant milestone in the coin's history.
