God Save the Queen, but YOU Save her Gold Sovereigns!

British Gold Sovereigns were first minted in 1489. And, ever since George III was king in 1817, they've always had a design showing Saint George slaying the Dragon on the reverse. British Gold Sovereigns are recognized and traded around the world. They've been minted on five different continents. World War II, Korea and Vietnam Era pilots carried them in their survival kits. Why? Because when you're in a tight spot, Gold Sovereigns talk louder than anything. Fifty Gold Sovereigns even saved James Bond's life in From Russia With Love.

British Gold Sovereigns always show the image of the reigning Monarch during the year they were minted, and the longest running series of Gold Sovereigns are those depicting Queen Victoria, who occupied the throne between 1837 and 1901. This is the era when it was said that "The sun never sets on the British empire."

Each Gold Sovereign is struck in 91.7% gold and contains .2354 ounces of pure gold. Starting in 1893 and running until her death in 1901, Queen Victoria's Gold Sovereigns feature her portrait wearing a veil and are known as Veiled Head Sovereigns. These can be hard to find in collector grades, and even more difficult to secure certified and graded by NGC. Each is sealed in an acrylic holder to protect your coin's grade and assure its provenance forever.
