First-Ever Brilliant Uncirculated Gold Sovereign With a Matte Finish

First struck in 1817, Great Britain’s legendary Gold Sovereign is one of the oldest and most recognized gold coins in the world, and the only coin to be struck on five different continents. Considered by many to be the flagship coin of The Royal Mint, it is the unmistakable centerpiece of many British coin collection. For 2019, the Gold Sovereign dons a new look because for the first time ever The Royal Mint has struck a Modern Gold Sovereign with a Matte Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) finish!

Struck in approximately one-quarter ounce of 91.7% (22 karat) gold, this superb coin not only exhibits Benedetto Pistrucci’s classic design of St. George and the Dragon that has appeared on the coin since 1817, but it also features for the first time a sublime matte finish that gives it a soft, satin-like appearance. A work of art in miniature form, the Quarter-Ounce Gold Sovereign is one of the most widely-traded coins in the world and is popular among collectors and gold bugs alike.

In addition, the 2019 Great Britain £1 Gold Sovereign Matte Finish Coins we have available in this offer have all been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded coins have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. Plus, NGC has also certified that these coins are one of the first 100 struck in the series! Collectors seek out coins like these because they are produced with brand new dies and have sharper strikes and deeper mirrors than those struck later. Also, the population of coins labeled “One of First 100 Struck” is a small fraction of the total mintage. Each will come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder that attests to the grade and certification and bears an exclusive Tower Bridge label.

Once recognized as legal tender in more than 20 countries, the Sovereign’s status as an elite gold bullion coin is unsurpassed. The added feature of it being the first-ever Matte Brilliant Uncirculated edition in the series adds even more luster to owning this coin. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity; reserve your Gold Sovereign today!
