Sovereign coins are gold bullion coins of the United Kingdom, which were once in circulation within the Gold Standard currency. Once the currency ceased in 1932, these coins became bullion coins, renowned for their fineness, collectability and historical significance. Each sovereign contains a minimum gold content of 0.2345 troy ounces and has a nominal value of one pound sterling, although their value is much greater than this on the bullion market.

This George V Gold Sovereign Coin was produced by the Royal Mint between 1911 and 1932, and is of particular value due to its being in circulation during the First World War. The obverse side of the coin bears the image of King George V, while the reserve depicts the traditional St. George and the Dragon design. Coins made after 1929 have a slightly smaller design, with an inner circle and double beading around the edge. Finely crafted and highly collectable, this George V Gold Sovereign Coin is the perfect choice for experienced gold bullion collectors.
