The Sovereign has been linked to royalty from the day it was first struck in 1489 and given a name that connected it to the monarch. In the centuries that followed it has faced plans to replace it with banknotes and economic pressures that brought an end to its use as circulating currency. The Sovereign has overcome these challenges to become famous all over the world. It remains a coin of the monarch, having carried the portrait of every British king and queen of the last 200 years on its obverse.
This royal story continues with The Sovereign 2019 which features the latest coinage portrait of Her Majesty The Queen, by Royal Mint coin designer Jody Clark, along with Benedetto Pistrucci’s classic St George and the dragon design. The Double-Sovereign, The Sovereign and The Half-Sovereign in this Premium Three-Coin Set are each struck to Proof standard and come with a Certificate of Authenticity and a booklet on The Sovereign’s story.
